Westwood Yard (OO)
Westwood Yard was driven by the desire to try and produce a layout to the highest standard that my skills and time would allow. The final design had to be small in order to maximise my chances of actually finishing the project, incorporate an element of audience participation and allow for an opportunity to display a growing collection of sound fitted 1980s diesel locomotives. I settled on a classic 'Inglenook Shunting' layout on the lower level with DC control via a front mounted controller. The higher level line is wired for DCC and incorporates a small stabling and refuelling depot.
The Rules of the Game
Class 08 rests between shunting duties.
|If eight wagons are used then five wagons are selected randomly to form a train in a set order. The siding restrictions are
adjusted to allow in each siding - 3, 3 and 5 with a shunter and 3 wagons in the head shunt. There are 6720 possible 5 wagon train combinations possible!!
Westwood Stabling Point
Heavy freight locomotives stabled between duties at Westwood Stabling Point.
Overall presentation as seen at exhibition.
Class 33 traction takes on fuel at the refuelling point.
