East Street Wharf

Description based on material supplied by the layout owner

East Street Wharf  
Margaret Evans EM gauge 4mm scale

East Street Wharf is a setting somewhere in the Midlands in late GWR / early BR days. There is an interchange shed for general goods. On the other side of the basin, coal and steel is unloaded. Road transport is on the increase as the wharf is taken over by other industrial users.

Trackwork is SMP, points and hand-built and controlled by rod and slider switches. Magnets under the track operate Sprat & Winkle couplings. Rolling stock is kit built or modified 'ready-to-run'. Buildings and scenics are scratch or part kit built.

The layout is now controlled by DCC.
