  • York loco yard


    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. 


    The layout's location is in the city of York, North Yorkshire. The yard is located near the National Railway Museum. Because of this, the museum's shunter, 09017, can be sometimes seen in the yard. 



    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.


    Rolling stock


    I currently have two items of rolling stock to use: class 09 Shunter 09017 and an Ews open wagon. Both are by Hornby for their Railroad range.
