Time for a layout -
somewhere to display
models for now.
A while ago I was given a sheet of 5-ply and decided to use
it as a module to at least display my models.
The idea was to go for a goods yard scene, Gracefield, late
1960s, with the goods transfer shed as its focal point.
Using the free (for basics anyway) AnyRail program I designed a yard, very very
loosely based on, a very cut-down Gracefield, and using Hutt City historic aerial views, was able
to make a scale outline of the goods shed and see how everything
Layout plan in AnyRail
showing the shed and its internal platform.
The module can be expanded via the entry/exit road on the
left, and by two roads top-right. This follows the prototype
in as far as the left exit is off to Woburn, and to the right
are various industrial sidings, mostly oil installations.
Using a few sheets of A4 taped together and folded, a scale
outline was made to see how things fitted.
An idea of scale of the
goods shed with Lc, Kp, and La wagons.
First up, building the
big goods transfer shed.
More to come. . .
