Winker's Yard — 00 Gauge
7'00" X 1'00"
This Layout was built around ten years ago, as a
stop-gap project. It is now performing that role again, while I build my
next layout, which hopefully will be ready next year. Watch this space!
Designed purely as a home layout, and never
intended exhibition. The whole layout is on one 2m long board. It just fits
in my car! The buildings were constructed largely from card kits; some being
adapted the suit the space.
Operation is simple – but great fun. Each wagon
has a corresponding card.
A train arrives onto the layout from the Fiddle
Yard, and is put away. The next train is made up by shuffling the cards of
the wagons already on the board, then laying out five of them. The
corresponding train is then made up to match the cards, and departs to the
Fiddle Yard. The whole process then starts again.
