Above: The imagined empire of the P&WR
Traction is strictly battery powered, and 50% of this is radio controlled, due to limited access in some areas for manually operated units. Locos range down from a Roundhouse 'Criccieth Castle' to a diminutive quarry loco, somewhat stranded on the high level of Silvercliff Quarry. The current assemblage of units covers all degrees of hauling capabilities.
Radii are also sometimes tight, requiring short wheelbase 4-wheeled rolling stock.
There are five stations and one halt, with extensive sidings under cover both inside and outside at South Yard and North Yard respectively, and multi levels of track route enable a mainly ground level run (continuous if preferred) to gain the necessary height required to reach the covered area to the right of the layout. A pierhead extension is planned below Manorton Station, to link with a future possible passenger ferry service.
I'm hoping to make it all as interesting to look at as it is for operating, and hope that I'm more or less succeeding in this goal. The infrastructure is now almost complete, and additional detailing is a next task.
Since the plan below was drawn up extra sidings have been added to South Yard, and the short reverse siding at Pinehill has been lifted, the bay siding being more practical as a goods siding.
