Springfield Yard

This ‘HO’ gauge DCC operated layout depicts a small switching yard located at the end of a branch line somewhere in the North East USA /Southern Ontario region of North America.

The timeframe is circa 1970’s/1980’s and various local industries are served by the yard. Motive power is usually provided by the two resident Pennsylvania railroad switchers but occasional visits are made by larger locomotives from various North American railroads including CP, CN, ON, UP, and Conrail.


This layout is privately owned and will come under the banner of Falkirk Model Railway Club when requested. Any requests must be confirmed through our club secretary.

Minimum overall footprint for layout and working space is 3.5M (11ft 6ins) x 2.0M (6ft 6ins) inclusive of a space for barriers at the front.
