As simple as it is, I think it will be quite a lot of fun. An operating "day" can consist of pulling the loco out of the engine house and onto the turntable, rotating it to line with the service track, pulling onto the service track for coal and water and then going back onto the turntable to turn the loco to be aligned with the mainline. Then the loco can be used to work the Inglenook puzzle. The tracks are longer than a traditional Inglenook which will make things easy but if I want the challenge I can put some kind of temporary wheel stop on the spurs to shorten them to a more traditional Inglenook length.
The thing I look forward to the most though is that I'm always rushing myself to get things done on a big layout. With a project this small I can savor every detail and really work on making something special without feeling "over extended" or a push to get done.
BTW, your signature really applies to me right now, it may not be "what's best, but it's what's best for me."
