HW Yard – O gauge model railway

An 0 gauge layout by Dave Harris & John Witts. The ‘HW Yard’ model railway diorama project represents elements of 1960s British Railways freight and mainline operations in a micro-space (for 1:43 scale, O gauge, 7mm/ft, 32mm gauge railroad) the scenic area being only 1.3 m2 (2002 inch2) and 2.4 m (8 ft) long. The layout is built for showing at exhibitions and all fits into an estate car for transportation. The base of the design is a low level freight yard with 3 sidings and a higher level main line track. The freight operation is independant and not connected to the double track main line. The main lines run on a viaduct such as one that can be seen in SW London where the Victoria lines cross the Waterloo lines we took as our prototype. These arches are the rear of commercial units that front onto the other side of the railway. The freight line exits to the right under a typical latice girder bridge.
