Frank Titman - Frank has weekly operating sessions on the Spiral Hill using a card system. In order to introduce (and remove) rolling stock on the layout, Frank uses a barge system. He has built 10 barges that are stored on racks under the layout. Each barge can hold 11 cars. During an operating session, an empty barge is set on the layout and loaded, then the barge is swapped out with one on the rack to bring a whole new set of cars onto the layout.
