Halland – Exhibition Manager’s Notes

A brief description of the layout for inclusion into your program.

Halland is 4mm OO gauge layout with a footprint of 13ft or 17ft x 1ft 6in (16ft/20ft x 5ft to allow operation space) with 8ft/12ft being used by scenery and the remaining 5ft used as a fiddle yard. The layout is currently operated from both the front and back. The layout is freestanding on its own legs and comes with its own lighting which is a very light weight design and uses 24volt SMD light strip – this is proving to be very popular with public and exhibitors that see it. We require one mains power point and, for transport, the layout can fit into a car.

The layout is controlled with full DCC via IPods and IPads with turnouts and signals all working from them. All the locomotives used on the layout run DCC Sound , we normally present 1960 late steam and early diesel period but, the layout is set in the Northern regions, it’s a classic example of main stream modelling using trackwork from the Peco range.
