Scarborough & District Railway Modellers

Menabrea

A HO layout by Alan Wardman



The layout is based on a small country station and goods yards somewhere north of Milan up towards the Swiss border.  The track is Peco code 100 with insulfrog points as we have used the points to isolate the sidings.  The control is by Gaugemaster hand held unit with points changed by wire in tube; the buildings are Hornby International cast resin so you just glue them to the boards - job done.

We use a two car DMU and loco plus two coaches for the passenger trains with a few diesel shunters plus main line diesels for the freights.  Operation is from the front as we like to be able to talk to the public .

There is lots of shunting into and out of the fiddle yard, as we like to keep things moving.
