A 009 narrow gauge model railway of Rhyd Ddu. The project was born in late 2005. This blog describes the planning, woodwork, track laying, wiring, DCC, scenery, locomotive and rolling stock. The layout is an impression of the Welsh Highland Railway (WHR) Rhyd Ddu station and Tro Ffridd reverse curves. 009 is 4mm scale (OO) narrow gauge using N gauge track.

The first set of rails have been soldered to the brass screws. The base green grass is also in view, with further coats to come plus detailing, so no worries that it doesn't yet match the older grass on the adjacent board.
