  • Bedroom shunting layout


    The layout is OO gauge (1:76) and measures 67cm by 19cm. It was designed for two reasons: To have enough operational potential (I like to shunt wagons a lot) and small enough to fit into my bedroom. The layout doesn't have name yet, hence the title. It doesn't have a specific location: It can be rearranged to different periods. But when I'm running it at home, I normally use BR steam rolling stock. 

     

    Construction

    Work started on the layout in December 2020. It is entirely made up from by cardboard: for example, the backscene is made up of sections of cereal boxes. The baseboard is half a cardboard slab cut from the fiddle yard of McKellar Yard: They were salvaged from an Ikea delivery. The track is Hornby and is glued onto the board which was then painted grey. Currently, the track is awaiting ballasting. I designed the layout in a way so that the fiddle yard can be separated from the main section when it is in transit.
