    or by way of PM. 


    Layout based in Cardiff. 




    { Ex-S&DJR Goods only branch }


    British Railways 1955- 1962

    Bleat Wharf is a small inland quay 'somewhere in Somerset' and is at the end of a spur off the Highbridge branch of the S&DJR, set in the 1950s.

    Goods only, the area is run down and approaching closure. Traffic is mostly vans or covered carriage trucks serving the few remaining quayside businesses. Services run as required and haulage is provided by wheezy ex-Midland 3F tender locos with the occasional 4F or 1P 0.4.4T.



    Overall size of the layout is  7ft x 2ft.


    Baseboards is my now usual IKEA shelfage.


     Track -PECO Code 75. Buildings are a variety of Ready To Plant from Bachmann and Hornby.

    Locos  as mentioned above, are ready to run Midland types from Bachmann. Rolling stock is also ready to run. All stock buildings etc are weathered accordingly.



    Bleat is operated from the front by one operator and needs an overall space of 7ft x 4ft. One socket will suffice. 


    Insurance value is £1000.00


    Bleat Wharf has appeared in BRM October 2019.
