Isbury Road

Description based on material supplied by the layout owner

Isbury Road  
David Stevens O gauge 9mm scale

Isbury Road is an excuse for showing off my collection of 'O' gauge engines.

The layout loosely represents a former steam engine depot that has been modernised for Diesel engine use but has somehow, through the years retained its turntable, for which todays steam engine charter business is very grateful.

Heritage steam locomotives regularly use the depot, for turning, refuelling and watering, after visiting the nearby city terminus station.

You can expect to see frequent movements on and off the depot of various classes of diesels, mixed in with them, visiting steam engines waiting to use the turntable, watering and fuel facility.

The geographical location of this depot is quite difficult to find as it is "Somewhere over the Rainbow" in "La La Land"

Operation is by DCC with sound. Peco track is used and all buildings and structures are scratch built. Except the turntable which I built from a Midland Railway Centre kit.
