Construction of the layout was commenced in 2014. It was envisaged that the layout would be end to end and consist of 7 boards 4 feet x 3 feet. The model would be of a steel works utilizing Walthers kits for the main structures. The layout is also DCC. Track work was drawn on computer by means of the any rail program. Due to dimensional restrictions some features of a working steel plant have been left out but it is to be hoped that the atmosphere and entertainment value of the prototype has been achieved.
This is a OO layout some of the main elements of a steel production plant namely a dock, blast furnace, Bos plant, coke ovens and a rolling mill. The layout is 28ft long by 7 ft wide. There is 20 ft of scenic steel works and a rear simple shuffle yards The layout is DCC controlled in the modern image style using Freightliner and EWS class 66. The layout was constructed in 18 months with the base board made from foam board to achieve easy transportation.
