Innovation in the hobby

For years now many of us have discussed the need for vertical staging to save space and many ideas were discussed to push the idea forward.  The ideas were usually some variation off a garage door opener or a pully system. None seemed to be satisfactory as such a system needs to be flawless and remotely comtrolable.  Well our British cousins seem to have found the answer.  Pleas watch the following YouTube for Nelevator.


This is a radical improvmwnt even with heavy cost. It not be worth selling a few sound locos you never will use to make the down payment. Improvements like this give me hope for the hobby


  1. This is a pretty nifty device from a layout design and operations perspective. The only problem with the video is that there is no side view. Check out the website:


    These things are expensive but seem well worth it. The British do wonderful work with layouts and technical fixes in small spaces.

    Happy Thanksgiving!!!

  2. The cost of the unit would be roughly equivalent to the cost of the track, points, motors and other wiring needed for a conventional storage yard
