Westwood Park

Westwood Park is the Hull Miniature Railway Society ‘0’ gauge layout built by its members to replace the old three rail layout. This layout has been designed to run on two rail and three rail using stud contact to a universal scale.

So to the setting which is a LMS 1950s era with a hint of LNER influence. The place name is made up from memories of a founder member, Tom Wood, and the West being from West Park where he spent time on larger scale railways. Wood being his surname and park back to West Park.

The layout comprises of a through station with passing loops and a small loco shed and depot, it is intended that a goods yard will be added soon. The main tracks run pass a level crossing to the viaduct which becomes four tracks and the idea is for this to become a scenic fiddle yard, then the main line carries on to pass the town on the hillside and back to the station to form a ‘tail chaser’. The other line running to the edge of the board near the stone road bridge is a future plan to install a branch line to run diagonally across the centre. Scenery has been added to compliment the background.

Size: 24ft by 13ft (7.4m x 4m)(including operator space)
