    McKellar Yard depicts an fictitious goods yard somewhere in Scotland during the 1970s,  when Steam locomotives have only just been withdrawn a few years before. The yard is located on an industrial estate and serves a nearby warehouse. The yard is only small but it is capable of dealing with the amount of freight BR moves. The yard shunter, a Class 06, potters about the yard shunting wagons, readying them to be added onto a train.  The whole layout measures 102cm by 40cm.

     

     The layout is not yet fully complete. Progress can be viewed here:
