Shed Street - 0

8'00" x 1'6"

Using the tried and tested ‘Inglenook Sidings’, Shed Street has been built to demonstrate that a small, interesting layout can be built in 0 gauge without resorting to kit building.


Trackwork is Peco using ‘Y’ points to save space. The locos and rolling stock are all ready to run, the only modification being to fit magnetically operated couplings. The points are powered by DCC Concepts ‘Cobalt’ point motors and the layout is operated using a Digitrax DCC Controller.


Plywood baseboards make the layout light and it easily fits into the back of a car.


Operation consists of arranging a random selection of five wagons into the correct order. This is not as simple as it sounds as there are restrictions to the headshunt and siding lengths.
