Having pretty much finalised the Eversley Road plan (thanks to a lot of help here), a small plank was suggested as the next step before starting on that (which had grown in complexity far more than intended, but the final design was one I rather like). A reasonable suggestion, though it did deflate mojo a little (though it was just a small factor in reality).

Originally I came up with a small terminal for a 2 car unit or a pull-push 2 carriage+engine and some goods sidings. It just didn't gel in my head though.

Natalie (my friend whom I go to shows with and plan these things with) suggested looking at the Harton Electric system. Wanting to keep things as simple as possible and within the 6ftx1ft6" space (+2-3ft storage), the High Staithes part was selected as being simple and workable.

Stock will mainly be 4 wheel hopper wagons and 0-4-0 electric locos. Possibly 0-6-0DH and Bo-Bo electric locos could turn up.

So I do Martin. Oops. I originally started with a pair of tandems to try to replicate the earlier formation when there were two staithes. It wouldn't fit and give enough room for enough wagons without adding another 3ft of length.
