Welcome to my site, Riverside Yard. The site is about the layouts that I am building, in a variety of scales - 009, HOn30, On30 & 1n20. These layouts are all small narrow gauge shunting/switching layouts, one English and three American.

To navigate through the site use the menu bar to the left. The links that you see now are visible from all pages in the site, although some pages will contain additional links on the menu allowing access to further pages within that section of the site.

The Operate section, the main part of the site for many visitors, allows you to operate representations of two layouts on screen using mouse clicks. This is done using JavaScript therefore no downloads are required, in fact once the page has loaded you could disconnect from the web if you are paying by the minute.

Enjoy your visit.

Progress update.

I have not made much progress recently - the usual summer slow down!
I have begun building rolling stock of a type similar the L&B bogie wagons for a planned layout. This stock is made up of prototypical L&B wagons plus other freelance wagons of a similar style. They will be painted and lettered for either L&B or GW. I have yet to decide on the locos to be built.

I though that would be it for now, but not so fast! I had been planning a small layout using 0-4-0 steam locos plus 4 wheel wagons and coaches to use the new Peco 009 points when they were released. However on finding out these were not to be live frogs I abandoned this - two axle locos will not run over these points. At least that is what I has assumed until recently when I saw a posting on a forum of videos of 0-4-0 locos running over these points - and they were running perfectly well! So that layout may be back on the cards as well. I guess that I had better dig out all the plans I had put to one side.

Site resdesign  
You may notice new pages appearing on the menu bar. This is an ongoing redesign of the site to better represent the fact that I spend far more time building rolling stock than I do layouts, so I plan to cover the two under separate sections.
Whilst working on the redesign I will endeavour to avoid broken links and blank pages, however there will be a transition period during which the same information may be presented on more than one page.
