Wilford is the second of two new club 4mm layouts.

It is modular and intended for the exhibition circuit.

Each board is 4' x 2' giving a total size of 24' x 8' with an option to insert one board from each end giving an option of 24' x 12'

At the beginning of October 2020 the two main lines have been completed and trains have been run all over the layout, including the large number of tracks in the fiddle yard. The points in the fiddle yard have been fitted with motors and connected to a mimic board which slides out from beneath one of the fiddle yard boards.

Most of the points on the front of the layout have had motors fitted and discussions are ongoing as to the most convenient method of controlling them!

The engine shed and the turntable have been sited and track laid to both.

The coaling stage has been built and installed and appropriate track laid.

The island platform has been installed with the relevant buildings.
