Steel carriers For Troutons

Troutons is the new 4mm Modern image layout of the Wakefield Model Railway Society. It features a Heljan container crane, booking on point and scrap yard. The aim is to provide viewers with typical trains that would be seen passing through West Yorkshire. After the Wakefield show the team are now busily upgrading stock ready for the next exhibition.
