This is my 2 mm (‘N’ Gauge) micro wagon repair shop layout.
It is based around the traditional inglenook track plan with magnets buried under the track for automatic uncoupling.
I built this layout when I was about 16 and had a free weekend. I found a short odd shaped piece of wood in the garage and thought ‘I can get a layout onto that’.
The whole project was ‘completed’ (we all know a model railway is never finished) in about 10 days with a few extra bits of detailing added, such as the spares on the pallets, as time went along.
The whole layout was built using a mix of heavily modified kits and pre-built buildings from Peco, Bachmann & Hornby with some scratch built items such as the shed ‘spot lights’, point levers, signs, wagon spares and general line side clutter.
Sadly the layout hasn’t been used for a while so when I put power to it I discovered that not all the lights were working. Namely the interior shed lights and one of the yard lamps in front of the shed, so the layout doesn’t look its best in these photos but I hope you get the idea.
I hope you (and your readers) enjoy viewing this layout
A wonderful N scale (I’d go blind making one like that). But it got me thinking. The smaller the layout, the easier they are to store and sell.
That’s all for today folks. But don’t worry. Back tomorrow.
Please do keep ’em coming.
