Video of miniature chain shunting at Brewhouse Quay

Chain shunting a wagon at Brewhouse Quay onto the wagon turntable, the turntable then rotates and the wagon is pulled clear.

A wagon with more drag would probably produce a better effect - something else to add to the pile of things to be done.

In real life shunting like this would be done with rope with chain only on the the very ends, but sadly law of physics give fine thread too much memory to be practical for such a small model.
