Campbells Yard

Description based on material supplied by the layout owner

Campbells Yard  
Nailsea & District MRC OO gauge 4mm scale

Campbells Yard was built to see how a small layout could be structured. The overall measurement is 22" x 8" the scenic section of the layout measuring 16" X 7".

Operation involves 5 wagons - 2 in the hidden siding and 1 each in the front sidings. Each wagon is represented by a playing card; the cards are shuffled and dealt out, indicating the location that the wagon should be.shunted to. When the wagons have been shunted to their chosen locations, the process is repeated.

During the course of the day to ring the changes, I have two sets of stock. First pre-B.R. days, using a Brighton Terrier and private owner wagons. The second early B. R. using an 08 + 04 diesels.
