New Harbour Junction

Description based on material supplied by the layout owner

New Harbour Junction WEBSITE  
Rob Newman O gauge 7mm scale

At just 15ft by 1ft 6in, this is a compact O Gauge layout of the interchange point between the British Railways line and the parallel light railway serving a small dock complex which we imagine is beyond the bridge.

Passengers can change from the British Railways train which is more often than not a 'Derby Lightweight’ railcar to the adjacent light railway which provides a 'Galloping Goose' railcar for their passengers.

Freight wagons are hauled up from the harbour by a variety of steam or diesel industrial locomotives, to be collected by the BR pick-up goods using the connecting spur. Larger BR tender locomotives often pass by New Harbour Junction as light engines on their way to a nearby motive power depot. The layout can be operated to accommodate rolling stock from the different former BR Regions, including the Western, Scottish, Southern and London Midland.
