Fryup

A 009 layout by Chris and the late Arthur Towers
Scale 4mm/1ft
Gauge 9mm
Size 10’ x 1.5’

Fryup is a father and son layout, both being members of Bradford Model Railway club.

It was built as a novelty to “00” after seeing many small layouts at exhibitions.  Neil Metcalfe further enhanced our enthusiasm to model in this gauge (many, many thanks!)

The layout is 11’ x 18” and is laid to a gauge of 9mm with a scale of 4mm to the foot.  It is run as an end to end type with the fiddle yards being at the rear of the layout.
Track is PECO crazy track and is controlled by a Gaugemaster handheld controller, and track cleaner.

Stock is made up of various white metal and plastic kits including Chivers Finelines, Dundas, Meridian and Peco.
Our layout makes interesting running with the head shunt to the goods yard.  Watch out for the novelty features like working buffer lamps, smoking chimneys and opening gates with lamps.
Can you spot any wildlife?  Cats, dogs, owls, foxes or squirrels?
We hope you like the layout as much as we have enjoyed making it for your pleasure and if you have any questions please ask – we don’t bite!
