Yate Rocks Tramway

Yate Rocks Tramway … my OO9 (4mm) scale Exhibition Layout

Yate Rocks Tramway is a 4mm scale ‘009’ narrow gauge exhibition layout.  It features a small mineral tramway linking quarries near Yate Rocks and the former Midland Railway Bristol to Gloucester line near Rangworthy, South Gloucestershire.  It is set in circa 1950.

Recently, new motive power in the form of three Minitrains ‘Ruston look-a-likes’ have been introduced with steam largely retired.  But you never know …..

 

 

The buildings featured on the layout are, in the main, based on buildings found in the locality.  The manager’s “office” and the near derelict blacksmith’s featured in the two images above are based on the the buildings contained in the three images below.
