p59 Herschel loop 2 is a period 59 Herschel loop oscillator. It is the smallest known oscillator of this period that does not use snarks. It makes use of 40 lengths of the 77 step Herschel track and four corner Herschel tracks that take 112 steps. These are the same tracks that are used by P59 Herschel loop 1, created by David Buckingham in 1997. The tracks are rearranged to reduce the bounding box.
