The extension of Fair T’Middlin to include Appen Colliery has highlighted some shortcomings in the fiddle yard arrangement which currently only has four tracks and can only cater for two coach passenger trains. A new fiddle yard is now under construction which has a traverser and can rotate 180 degrees. It also has eight tracks which can accommodate eight trains including passenger trains with three coaches and a tender locomotive. The same Fiddle Yards can be used by each layout.
