Running a Timetable and Bending the Rules.

Had some fun today coming up with my first draught timetable, obviously it needs some honing - but the basic outline is there.

 

Here's one of - what some might call - the more "imaginative" manoeuvres undertaken: 

 

Cannon Street service arrives (Class 40 diesel hauled) at the Holding Siding.  It uncouples from the coaches, which are taken to the facing siding by my class 20.  (Plenty of clearance room!):

The Charing Cross service has been waiting patiently at platform 3 - and can now depart:

The coaches are then shunted to platform 3 and uncoupled:

The diesel can now cross over the points from the holding siding:

The points are changed, and the loco can couple to the head of the rake!:

Maybe not the most prototypical thing you might see today, but fun to do!
