Narrow Gauge North


The Ryedale Mineral Railway

A 09 layout by Derrick Noble
Scale 09
Size 27" x 11"

Built entirely inside an Ikea storage box, the Ryedale Mineral Railway depicts a 15” gauge line in North Yorkshire, built to carry crushed sandstone from the quarry to the processing plant. This layout is built to 09 scale, which means the figures, locos and buildings are to 7mm scale, whilst the track is 9mm gauge, to represent 15” gauge in real life. The track is from PECO, and most of the locos and stock are from kits from the ”Black Dog Mining” and “Avalon” ranges, with the locos running on a modified N gauge chassis. If you have any questions about the layout, or the scale please ask the operator.
