Grockle Goods - 00

4'00" X 1'00"

This layout was built to replace ‘Pilford Yard’, my previous shunting layout. And follows the same ‘Inglenook Sidings’ principles. Namely 2 sidings that hold 3 wagons each, 1 siding that holds 5 wagons, and a head shunt that holds 3 wagons and a loco. 8 wagons are placed onto the layout and corresponding cards are shuffled. 5 of the cards are then dealt out and a 5 wagon train is then marshalled to match.


The layout itself  is imagined to be the goods yard of a small GWR branch line terminus, the station area being on the other side of the road bridge. Maybe one day I’ll get round to building that bit too…
