Coryburn, as you see it today is a stand alone section of a much larger layout “Starbeck Bridge”
Starbeck measured 32ft in length and required a minimum of 4 operators, which made it impracticable for small venues.
We built a small fiddle yard so that Coryburn can be used as it is today. (Space required 10
x 6 including a small stock table)
Coryburn is built in “N” gauge (1:148 or 2mm/ft). The woodyard was built by 1 person and it was his first attempt at modelling in N gauge.
As well as the woodyard we have a small station and a goods depot with extra sidings supporting the ballast stone trucks.
Running various types of trains including Wood trains, Stone trains, Shunting engines and Passenger trains, we may also get a visit from a main line steam loco to fill up with water from the tower at the end of the platform.
