Whiteoak Light Railway – O-16.5

Built to 7mm scale and a track gauge of 16.5mm, the Whiteoak Light Railway is an entirely freelance narrow gauge industrial type railway and a figment of the builder’s imagination. Stock is either, kit built, scratch built or modified RTR with sound gradually being introduced. All the buildings are scratch built from styrene, MDF, plywood and DAS, the signs on the buildings contain the names of the operators who run the layout. Baseboards are plywood, using both sheet and sandwich construction. Train control is by DCC using the Gaugemaster Prodigy system, points are controlled by mimic panel. The main control positions are at the rear of the layout, where full-length mirrors above the layout give the operators a comprehensive view. We operate the layout to a 24 stage sequence which ends with everything in the correct position to start over again.
