Model Railway "Yeoford"
« on: November 28, 2010, 11:45:06 PM »
This is my model railway layout Yeoford, set somewhere in South Devon in a time scale 1958-1970. Enjoy!

That looks like quite a small board it is on....4 x 2 by any chance?

Very atmospheric...  :thumbsup:

Hi Claude, yes its just a 4x2 baseboard with simple wiring, which means I can only run one train. Its my first attempt at N gauge after i sold all my OO earlier this year due to lack of space. This lives on the bed in the spare room and is small enough to keep the missus happy!!  :) I have studied lots of photos of branch lines in the late 50s/60s, and tried to make it as detailed as possible in a small space, without over doing it. I hope its a good example of what can be achieved in this scale, and you can have an enjoyable layout in a tiny space!! It took 7 months to build., so a good timespan too. Thanks for the kind comments. Ian.

A lovely layout Ian.  Lots of detail, and lovely greenery.  It could almost be somewhere I'd like to escape to when I'm older!   :D

Cheers Tank. Its a place i go every day, thats why spare rooms were invented! I tried to post bigger pics than have appeared but never mind. Look forward to seeing your layout progress. Its great fun/frustrating/time consuming/relaxing all in the same day! I think this forum is going to produce some great modellers! Ian.

Lovely hydraulics, sir, if you don't mind me saying.

Brings back memories of D821 and its chums fighting its way through the emus at farnborough during my spotting days
Two rails good. Three better.

This layout looks really good and some lovely low level close up shots. I am not sure whether it is my computer or not, but the pictures seem very small and I do not appear to be able to enlarge them. Should they be able to expand?

Very nice indeed. Your layout shows just how much can be put into a space like 4x2 in n gauge and yet it doesn't seem overcrowded.
