Layout - 'Billy's n-gauge'

a  scenic model railways  layout –

Billy's n-gauge

Built in 2005 for a 6 year old boy, the 5'6" x 3' layout runs on castors and lives under his bed when not in use.

Trackwork is Peco n-gauge, fully ballasted.    Inner and outer circuits form a 'folded figure 8' giving a good long run. The trackplan features station loops and a goods yard and loco shed.

Points are manually operated, so wiring is limited to the track feeds.  A Gaugemaster twin track controller plugs into the baseboard.

The buildings are off-the-shelf items, the road bridge is Peco, and the tunnel entrances are Peco and others.  The station over-bridge was scratch built with Peco girders.  Station platforms were scratch build with the footbridge modified from two Kestrel kits.
