The Isle of Westland Railway

It's better by train.......

Trackplan.



A  plan of the railway. Ignore the numbers ..........they relate to the  photo's below from the Hornby Magazine photo shoot in 2013. Bruce Flaxman joined me for the day and supplied some of the stock featured. 

The line as can be seen can be considered as a 'folded dogbone'. There is a circuit allowing continuous running with two spurs leading to terminal stations. The 'junction' station is only connected to the rest of the island sytem in imagination........... I wanted the ability to have a large stock of loco's and rolling stock but no place for the indoor solution of the fiddle-yard. I started out expecting to run the line to a timetable and waggon card system ......once again as per many indoor lines...............but find that in practice runningrains on my own of with friends on an ad-hoc basis is more fun. I also enjoy photographing or filming the line. 

The main enjoyment comes from just watching the trains running in the landscape.
