Ukho Yard

Stuart Robinson's factory spur layout

Ukho Yard sketch

In Britain, the railways developed networks of goods sidings and factory spurs around most industrial towns. These largely disappeared in the 1960s. Ukho Yard is part of such a network with lines serving a warehouse, builders' merchant, wagon works, 'drops' and public siding. This design allows varied and interesting operation on a small layout.
