WESTWOOD PARK Scale 7mm - 1ft. Gauge 32mm('0') by Hull Miniature Railway Society
Size: 24ft by 13ft (7.4m x 4m)(including operator space). Operators: Three, Transport: Member's Van.
Westwood Park is the Hull Miniature Railway Society '0' gauge layout built by its members to replace the old three rail stud contact layout.
The layout is set around the 1950s in the Derbyshire/Nottinghamshire areas, not based on any particular location, but on an LMS theme with a hint of LNER traffic. It is based on a four line through station with island platforms served by a station building at a higher level in the main town. The town has the usual range of garage, shop, hotel and other buildings all of which overlook a market place complete with a bandstand. The railway then runs under the road bridge and continues to a girder which passes over a lower road bridge which in turn passes over a stream. The track here represents the main line with passing loops so this area serves as the 'fiddle yard' allowing the layout to be viewed from all sides as the lines run through the scenery. The line then runs back to the station passing a church , level crossing and the engine shed which is complete with a turntable and full loc support before the line re-enters the station.
From a passing loop in the station area there is access to a goods depot complete with coal staithes, weighbridge and office, there is also access to the branch line which can be exhibited on its own as well as part of the main layout.
This layout can be seen at the following Model Railway Shows:
