Selby Garden Railway Track Plan
|A basic track plan of the Selby
Garden Railway will be produced and made available shortly but briefly, the Selby
Garden Railway is being constructed as a double track figure of
eight. The majority of the line will be out in the garden with
just a small section being routed through a 10ft x 6ft garden
building housing a limited number of storage roads which will
feed the layout with a variety of trains. It is anticipated that
4 or 5 sidings will be constructed for each direction and that
the use of DCC will enable more than a single train to be stored
on a single road, which is especially suited to diesel and
electrical multiple units.
The Selby Garden Railway has a fairly large collection of stock
available and it is not possible for all that stock to be
available for running at any one time - there just isn't
sufficient space available for the number of storage roads that
would be required. It will therefore be necessary to rotate
stock, especially locomotives, at predetermined intervals so
that a variety of motive power is always on view.
In total, when completed it is estimated that a full circuit of the Selby
Garden Railway will be approximately 130 feet in length which
equates to a scale distance of about 1.87 miles.
