Hello All, I decided I would take advantage of a few days off work to get a lot of modelling done and tidy up the train room......but, I did nothing at all except run trains. Sad to admit I even moved things like tools and stuff out of the way rather than putting them away. So there I was switching away trying to put a train together and realised at one point that I had made way too many moves to achieve my aim and had only complicated my task with the last few moves. Just before the 0-5-0 descended on the yard I thought, "is this a problem that should be shared?" I've seen switching problems presented as competition assignments and had fun solving then with as few moves as possible, not that I was very good at it though. I was thinking that it might be amusing to run a thread that explored such a concept but was based on actual track plans and consists of the members. Of course I haven't done anything about it other than the thoughts you have just read and I doubt that I could actually meet my own challenge, but I would be interested in knowing how other members feel about it.
