Flossil Quay

009 Gauge by
David Balderstone

 

I have always liked narrow gauge railways and thought, why not have a go at a layout. This layout is on a board measuring 2” x 4”.  Half of the layout is the actual Flossil Quay and the other is hidden sidings and the power and controller.  The layout is a based on a private narrow gauge railway company servicing a Quay.  The main business is coal export and local produce.  In the holiday periods the main traffic is holiday makers who visit the little town of “Flossil”. The layout has 4 locos running either a passenger of freight services.  These locos are either steam or diesels.  All the coaches are German and some have been repainted and detailed with the Flossil Quay railway company wording.

All the locos are German / Belgian style ROCO made, with two diesel and two steam locomotives.  All of which are 0-6-0 locos that provide the service. There are two types of makes on the layout.  ROCO coaches which have been repainted in Flossil Railway company colours and Lilliput Coaches which have remain in their original German / Belgian colours.  There are four rakes of coaches on the layout all coupled together in two’s. Mostly all the freight is ROCO, there are a few of long wagons which take out the local produce from the loading platform.  There are a number of coal wagons that move around the layout to and from the coal distributers.

All the track is Peco either 009 track or N gauge track, the latter is used for the hidden sidings and under the two tunnels.  The points are all Peco 009 points which are all electrified and are controlled from the hidden sidings part of the layout. All the 009 points are powered by Gaugemaster point motors, all situated under the board.  The scenery is a mixture of Hornby / Peco / Bachman people, cars and other bits and pieces.
