Adding a two-line staff above a trumpet staff

I’m trying to figure out the best way to add a two-line staff above a trumpet staff. The trumpet has double bells and so I am looking to indicate bell changes above the trumpet line in a separate staff as per the attached excerpt. Any suggestions would be most welcome!
Thank you.

You can add a two-line staff above your trumpet staff by adding a suitable two-line instrument, such as a percussion kit with two instruments set to use the grid presentation type. You might find it helpful to have the instrument held by the same player or given to another player depending on whether you need the trumpet player to also change instruments.

Thank you!! I wish I asked earlier …

One further question, in terms creating lines as per the example above, is there an easy way to create lines that stay on the ‘grid’ lines for each of the two percussion kit instruments? It seems I need to input a note and then hide it ?

Also, how about diagonal lines between the two? Is this best done in the Engrave mode?

Yes, unfortunately those kinds of lines are hard to create on percussion instruments. You can’t use notehead-attached horizontal lines on percussion grids, but you can use horizontal lines and then edit their positions in Engrave mode.
