|| [[File:IMG 3370.JPG|400px]] || Possibly the most salient feature of Inglenook Sidings - the classic British shunting puzzle par excellence - is its sheer simplicity in terms of track layout. There may in fact be some modellers who never really look into this shunting puzzle because it may at first sight hardly seem to offer much operational challenge. But as is so often the case, first impressions can be misleading, and it is precisely the simplicity of the "Inglenook formula" which makes it work so well and makes operating it so highly addictive. The brainchild of Alan Wright (1928 - 2005) is one of those rare examples where a clever and well balanced combination of a reduced setting and input actually provides an unexpectedly rich end result, and Inglenook Sidings is a picture book perfect example of "reduce to the max".
