Wood Street WEBSITE  
Swindon MRC O gauge 7mm scale

Wood Street is a minimum space industrial layout inspired by typical urban shunting yards that could be found in many towns and cities in England.

The time frame is deliberately flexible to facilitate the use of different members stock. A variety of small tank engines and diesel shunters can usually be seen in operation on the layout, together with a wide selection of rolling stock.

Structures and buildings are largely freelance although the layout Wood Street is partly derived from a road in the Old Town area of Swindon, which had rail access until the early 1970s.

Trackwork on the layout, including the four points, are all Peco. No automated coupling system is used - instead shunting is reliant upon manual coupling of traditional 3-links.
