Wood's Wharf (7mm scale, O gauge)
About the railway's setting
The layout depicts the canal/rail interchange of a larger industrial complex. Wagons and goods would be received and despatched to the national rail network via interchange sidings off scene.
The company’s own shunting engines move the wagons as required around the site for loading and unloading.
About the layout
Wood’s Wharf is a simple, 0 gauge shunting layout. It represents neither an actual location nor a definite period in railway history. The locomotives and rolling stock could be from anywhere and any time.
It was started some years ago by a club member Stuart Wood, who died before its completion. Several members, who remember Stuart with respect and fondness, are now completing what he commenced, changing his ideas only where it has been necessary to make the layout more transportable and easier to operate in public.
Wood’s Wharf, the only 7mm scale layout in what is mostly a 4mm club, is – despite its scale – currently the Club’s smallest layout.
