Photographs and Description by Jeff Haigh.
This small (about 22 inch x 6.5 inch) layout easily fits on a bookshelf - yet it supports lots of shunting activity as short trains move between "offstage" sidings under a water tank (rear, right) and warehouse doors (front, left). Saving space and key to the operation is a turntable that can carry a loco and one or two goods vans. Unusually, the well of the turntable has been cut down - but not its platform - hence, though it will not turn through 360 degrees, it will pivot giving the short train access to many different tracks.
The layout was easy to construct and its cardboard buildings and foam-core base ensures lightweight as well as small size - good for a novice whose short of space!
