Fiddlers Wharf


An experiment with DCC (Digital Command Control). The layout is basically a shunting game, The aim being to shunt the wagons into the front line sequence denoted by the cards, a task made more difficult by the fact that the headshunt will only take two wagons and the engine.

Point work is hand built from EM Gauge Society plans using on copper clad sleepers and phosphor bronze track to give a rust tinge effect.

Points are changed by wire in tube method attached to slide switches which also change the frog polarity. Control is by the basic Bachmann E-Z command unit.

Buildings and scenic effects are scratch built from plasticard and other bits found in the scrapbox.
