Model Rail (UK) - - Masterplan Dramatic Lines -

This 6ft 3in by 4ft 1in com­pact lay­out has been in the Peco Se­track Plan­book OO/HO (Plan 20, pages 44 and 45) since its in­cep­tion, and while it’s very much North Wales in op­er­a­tion and ap­pear­ance, it’s a purely fic­ti­tious de­sign. Note the con­trast­ing track ar­range­ments on ei­ther side of the base­board for more var­ied op­er­a­tion, par­tic­u­larly the fun fac­tor that comes with a di­a­mond cross­ing in the goods yard. With a cen­tral op­er­at­ing/ac­cess well, base­board con­struc­tion will need to be stronger than one with­out. This plan was orig­i­nally de­signed to have a pos­si­ble ex­ten­sion along the rear, for a fid­dle­yard at a lower level and a typ­i­cally Welsh end-to-end nar­row gauge line above.
