Hillside Mining

Description based on material supplied by the layout owner

Hillside Mining  
Dave Griffin OO9 gauge 4mm scale

Hillside Mining is our second layout situated in the fictional location of Hillside in mid Wales. The scale of both is 4mm with narrow gauge track to 009 specifications.

The scenario is that of a drift mine that has been reactivated for coal supplies, during the miners strikes during the 1970's. It is situated adjacent to a preserved narrow gauge line of Hillside Works.

This allows the use of a mixture of stock, both kit built and propriety, with some preserved steam but mostly working diesel locomotives.
