Attached Image: IMG_1540.JPG Attached Image: IMG_1541.JPG Campbell Riverside is a small freelance depot/serving point facility, for the refuelling and light maintenance of locomotives. The layout is operated by DCC with some of the locomotives fitted with sound.
The track plan for Campbell Riverside is based on an 0 gauge layout called 'Swansea Riverside' built by the late Alistair George of Luton Model Railway Club of which I am a former member.
There are many light engine moves around the depot. and also some freight moves to bring in supply's for the stores.


It is not set in any particular timescale or era, but is imagined to be somewhere in Canada near the US border, which helps explain the varied mix of locos seen on Campbell Riverside.
