I attach some "blob filling ideas" as food for thought.

Now seriously, the small cupbaord looks like it could support a board large enough for a R1 helix. This would be good enough to gain height for accessing a diagonal bridge across your L-shaped "mother board" - or alternatively an elevated return loop or a diagonal branch line. The inside of the helix could be left open, e.g. to create a harbour dock scene partially bridged by the upper helix portion.


Sorry to disappoint you, Ak, but there isn't room for anything like that. The cupboard is barely a foot deep and two foot across. There's no room for even half of an R1 return curve.

I would like suggestions for a scenic extension that will fit on the cupboard, not something that I can balance on the cupboard but will occupy half the room! BigGrin

There might be scope for some change of elevation, maybe with a rear track higher than the front.

Also, I don't want to re-work the existing main part of the layout, so the track must be to the left of the turnout on the main line only.

Nice suggestions, Ak, but seriously, each of those is already bigger than the whole of my layout!

I'm looking for a little corner filler, nothing bigger.

How about a military set up of some sort? It could be something from the mundane like delivering mail or food to loading/unloading tanks and artillery to a super secrete hide out.
