Draxborough

N Gauge

Using a mix on words, Draxborough is a fictitious Power Station scene based partly on Richborough and Drax sites. With modellers licence we also have nearby a modern TMD, Refuelling Point, Halt, Factory Space, Fishing Pond and Golf Course. The layout dimensions are 15’ 6” x 5’ 3”.

Draxborough Plan

Draxborough was designed from scratch using AnyRail 6 software. You can double click on the plan to get a full view. The pictures below should the layout under construction with all the track laid and wiring complete. Next phase will be installing Point Motors and the Control Panels. We have used wire from Maplins (now closed) and using automotive connectors. The idea is to reduce the amount of soldering and allows us to isolate each board for easier fault finding that we hope will never happen. Well of course that’s what you hope!

A view of Draxborough from the left side. This can be compared to the plans and is hopefully correct.

Fiddle Yard Points

Draxborough has six points leading to the fiddle yard. Further around the bend is another four points giving storage for smaller DMU’s etc.

Fiddle Yard Full Length

Draxborough Fiddle Yard is an eight road train storage area with midway isolators. The middle roads have a Diamond Slip for changing sides.
