Set the turnout to the halfway position (use...

    Spurs / customers on a switching layout?

    May be worth taking a look at this post - it is simply one industry, with multiple buildings and several spur tracks, but look at the range of cars needed to switch it! http://www.the-gauge.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=2512&p=87390&hilit=old+grandad#p87390 There will be a lot of shuttling...
