Heatherley is our main club N Gauge layout
Heatherley has already exhibited at Southport (Best N Gauge in show), Heywood and also at the International N Gauge Show at Leamington.
Heatherley is a fictitious layout built as a multi-era layout to accommodate the stock available by members.
At one end is a town, featuring many scratch built as well as proprietary buildings and a Faller working coach system.
This leads into a dock area which has scratch built warehouses, 2 bridges and a country pub complete with beer garden.
From here it moves in to farmland, complete with an array of farm buildings and animals, through which the branch line meanders for use in commuting as well as providing a means for stone trains to access the quarry.
The quarry features buildings, workshops and a batch plant which loads stone into waiting hoppers and wagons. These are shunted to make complete trains again ready to be moved onto the main line for onward shipping.The track work is a double main line with a single branch line using Peco flexitrack and streamline points, the points are changed using Peco point motors.
Power required is 1 x 13 Amp RCD will be used
The layout is 16 feet by 40 inches and requires a footprint of 18 foot by 8 foot.
