Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
I'm starting out a new layout in On30. I've been looking at waybill systems that can be as simple as possible.
Have seen some commercial ones and and some by modellers. From these I developed a wagon card that has a cardboard wheel colored into segments; each segment represents one turn. I have a green segment for "Loaded to.."; yellow segment for "Empty to..", red segment for "Repairs..Wait one turn" and a black segment for "Wait loading..". The segments and number of segments on a disc thus provide some randomness particularly when engine loading on trains is constrained, as in real life
The number of segments per wheel can be 8 but more segments depend on number of sidings, stations, etc.
Has anybody else seen a system or method like this? I haven't been modelling since the the mid 1970s so have missed lots of ideas.
Nice comments welcome LOL
