Bridge Street Goods - 00

 9'00" x 1'6"

 

 

Bridge Street Goods was originally built by Hazel Grove & District MRS member Martyn Baker and is now owned by NMDRM member Ian Hallworth. As an essentially generic design the layout can be run as almost any region and era.

It uses well proven methods of construction with plywood baseboards, Peco Code 75 track and simple DC control though this may give way to DCC in the future. The original locos and stock were fitted with three link and screw couplings but the layout has now been fitted with electro-magnets to allow DG couplings to be used.

Scenically the layout is et firmly in the North West of England with most of the buildings being from the Metcalfe range. Most of the buildings have been modified and all have been weathered to some extent.
