Gauge: ‘O’ (32mm) and ‘0-16.5’ (16.5mm) | Period: 1960s | Region: Industrial | Operating team: Martin Combs and friends
Built to 7mm scale with track gauges of 32mm and 16.5mm, The Yard is an entirely freelance industrial type railway, featuring standard and narrow gauge trains fitted with sound, radio controlled gantry crane and radio controlled lorries. Stock is either kit built, scratch built or modified ready-to-run.
All the buildings are scratch built from MDF, cut on a laser cutter supplemented by some 3D printed parts.
Baseboards are plywood and foam, supported by a steel leg unit. Control is by DCC using the Gaugemaster Prodigy system while points are controlled by the MERG CBus system. Special attention has been paid to presentation and operation, we run a very intensive display featuring all working aspects of the layout.
