Barrie Island - The Club Test Track

Exhibition Manager Details 

With the Club concentrating on the construction of exhibition layouts it was decided that we needed to construct a test track that could be set up quickly in the Club Room for members to test their locomotives and rolling stock. Whilst it is not designed as an exhibition layout it could be taken to model railway exhibitions. It is designed to operate on conventional 12 volts DC there is provision for it to be operated using a DCC system if required. The layout has been christen "Barrie Island" by a number of our Club members after one of our members Barrie Summers who regularly brings his prized locomotives to test on the layout and sometimes they don't work as he had hoped. During June and July 2016 the layout was rebuilt to allow more trains to be operated. The test track layout now features three circuits and can be operated in either analogue or DCC mode or a mixture of the two at the same time. The layout gives a number of our members hours of fun on club nights.
