Ginglenook Jr.

Many moons ago, Carl Arendt came up with a 'micro' version of the famous Inglenook shunting puzzle. I cobbled up one in G gauge on an old door, and took it around to a few exhibitions for the punters to try their luck. After some time, due mainly to the awkwardness of transporting the board, I recycled the track into the garden.

At the recent Rail-Ex show, a chap was flogging off some cheap LGB turnouts, so I got some, and set up a 'temporary' Ginglenook Jr. The puzzle still has its appeal.

I use the 'make 4 from 6' concept, with sidings holding 2 wagons, and the headshunt, loco plus 2.

The paint scraper is my uncoupler. I only use hook at one end. Photos taken before I put the bumper on, and spread out the consist cards.

Hi Gavin,

I hope you don't mind but I thought I ought to move this little delicacy as it's not Gn15. It looks good fun.

Inspiring, I've got to get around to building my 7/8ths version.
