Wyndham Row Layout
(
EM Gauge)

LAYOUT DETAILS PAGE

The layout in its original form was 12'-0" long and 18" wide. The visible part of the layout was 8'-0" long with the hidden fiddle yard 4'-0" long. As mentioned previously the gauge was to EM standards, being 18.2mm between the rails. All the pointwork (turnouts) were handbuilt, using copper clad sleeper strip. Switch blade operation was manual using thick piano wire rodding contained below the layout. Because the points use the live frog principle the frog polarity had to be switched. Switching was synchronised with the actuation of the point blades. A block of copper clad PCB was screwed under the layout board and onto it is fixed changeover switches. These switches were set up to operate with the rodding.
