Hi mate
The track has changed from this original plan but is very much the same idea. It is much more operationally friendly The turntable that is at Barts End is so that locos can be turned for the journey back. Plus nice to have one anyway!
Cheers Bart

Hi all,
Finally found some time to complete the track for the yard and loco areas at Zacton Junction. I want to model it based on a once it was a large loco depot due to location?junction but as steam has gone and its BR blue era the depot has been scaled back for diesel use plus enough of the old steam era buildings left for the heritage loco group who have moved in.
I also need it to be usable for last days of steam since ive now bought a few steam locos.
So have i capture it, can anyone provide advice guidance just to show it looks right if that makes sense.
thanks in advance


Bart

Nice photos, Bart.

I see you went for the coaling tower!

The spacing looks great, not too cluttered but with a decent mix of steam and diesel structures.

Please keep the updates coming. :thumbsup:

 Thanks tank!
Hi Dave
Yes grabbed the ash plant so still thinking about the coal tower but since its last days of steam or used as a heritage depot the coal tower might have already been pulled down as a mate suggested and could be replaced with a smaller coal stage or something. Any suggestions
Do I need anything else or reposition the buildings that are currently there
Cheers

Oops! I thought I saw the coaling beast but obviously had the wrong specs on!  :dunce:

The Scenecraft tower is a big and quite expensive thing. Doubt it's an essential building for the period you're modelling.

If you think a smaller version would complete the yard, Ratio do a kit, No 247.

Hatton's offer it for GBP18 + shipping.

I guess depending on how busy you want the yard, another service shed could do the job.
