I need some ideas for the freight yard of my layout. I'm considering intermodal but I don't have lots of space and really wanted to fit one of the posh Heljan cranes but I don't think its going to look right. If your interested my layout design is in my blog about half way on the first page. Freight is on the left and I've limited space.
I could do with with inspiration to try something different.
The "binliner" terminals are pretty small, you can see them on one of the aerial photography sites. IIRC the one west of Bath has a gantry crane, the Manchester ones use reach stackers (Northenden, Failsworth, I think there's another one somewhere).
