BGLR : Short form

This week on the BGLR I have been experimenting with shorter passenger trains. Apart from the philosophical question about whether a single carriage constitutes a "train" or not some of these shorter trains have been tried and work out pretty well. The push-pull unit is a single coach of course though as it's quite a bit longer it doesn't look quite as modest as a single Roco coach as shown below.

The BGLR is a small layout so shorter trains are the norm anyway, a single coach train is a perfect length. Obviously one day I'd love a much bigger layout and have lengthy trains of six or more coaches but until then...
