T Gauge Linear Motor Points/Switches and Automated Shunting

This video shows a small test track, demonstrating how part of my next linear motor layout will operate. It will be of a UK prototype, a minor 1930s GWR station, modelled in 1:480 scale (about 7% smaller than normal T Gauge).

The is a simplified and scripted version of the planned operating pattern of part of this layout, with automated shunting of UK-style 4-wheel wagons (each 12mm long!). The trains are just rough test builds for the moment. The full layout will be around 6' in length instead of the test track's 2', so will be able to handle (and shunt) full-length 40- or 50-wagon trains.
