What's a Timesaver?

It's a game, or to be more precise, it's a puzzle.
A model railroad puzzle.

John introduced his Timesaver to the model railroad world in an article in the 1972 November issue of Model Railroad Magazine.

"The object of the game is to make the required switching moves in the least time." - John Allen.

A simple layout, simple rules and sometimes very complex solutions will generate hours of pleasure.

Finding the fastest and/or best solution can be fascinating - often very satisfying - sometimes highly frustrating - but always fun...
