Product Type: Scenery/ Layout
Brand: OO / HO / On30

Circular Canyon can be an OO / HO orOn30 layout as it uses Peco OO gauge track and points. The layout wasoriginally built by Graham Broad of the Carshalton and Sutton MRC, as an American HO. Recently it has been shown at exhibitions as a On30 layout.

 

Imagine a high desert scene somewhere in the USA, maybe Arizona or Utah. Red and yellow rocks contrast with a clear blue sky. Thescenery is dominated by the deep scar of a canyon with towering multi-colouredstone all around. Along the side of this harsh landscape, a railway line has been carved.


Soon, the silence of the hot day is broken by the steadily increasing roar ofsteam locomotives working hard against the uphill gradient. Then they come into sight around the bend with a huge range of countless different boxcars, wagons or coaches, seemingly taking forever to pass by.
If your imagination is good enough, you should be able to see all that here. A circle of track, rising from one end to the other.

 

The layout is formed by 6 baseboards (each 60degrees) which when put together make up the 360 and comes with adjustable legsto suit any height of operator. There are two hidden fiddle yard sidings on the inside where Trains of anything up to 30 wagons with as many as 3 locomotives can be set (HO / OO Gauge). So that you should be able to see a train running almost continuously. This is really the point of the layout. Although a second train may be waiting, this is not about shunting trains and the same one may circulate for some time.

 

The baseboards are about a foot wide,with a 6 inch scenic section and 6 inch hidden loop, making the track design afolded figure of eight. Overall it takes up a space approx 10 foot x 10 foot.

 

The rolling stock in the photo's are Not Included in the sale of the Layout.

 

The layout maybe currently in the North of Scotland where collection would be preferred but I can arrange for it to be located in Glasgow, other areas can be made for delivery at fuel cost only or the layout can be transported part journey and exchanged into your own transport again with prior arrangement.

Question: Could I convert this to a UK layout. Answer: Yes i guess you could reprint it to a UK countryside, add a few trees and if you added a rail to the bridges they would look more British. Could be quite interesting......
