Welcome to Jay Dubyew Nth Yard, a 6' x 1' shunting yard which I run US locos and wagons. The name Jay Dub Nth Yard comes from my name. The Jay is the first letter of my name and the Dubyew (W), is the first letter of my middle name. Dad (Gary) and I decided to use North in the name because it is American based layout.

A plan of the layout.




Dad designed the plan on Anyrail for me which he borrowed the idea from Dolton Industry Park layout, but reversed it.  See here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adXMeNRjksI



Dad and I printed the plan 1:1, so that we could place wagons on it to see how it looks.
The shunting yard end, below.



The fiddle yard end of the plank.



Dad and I have purchased all the track, some being 2nd hand and the one left hand point on the plan was given to me from SMR Chris, thanks Chris. :thumbup:  Now it's time to build the baseboard proper.

Chow, Jack. :cool:

Woo Hoo! I've been looking forward to you starting this layout, Jack. I'll definitely be following along.

Hi Jack.

Interesting plan, looks good :thumbup:

Is that a double or single slip you've got in there ?

Thanks Ian. Dad and I will do our best. :mrgreen:

Hi Ed, it is a single slip.

I'll post up photos of my loco and wagons tomorrow or Friday. We should have the baseboard made by then.

Chow, Jack. :cool:

Great start Jack! with 4 shunting roads you will get hours of fun out of your layout, are you going to exhibit it or is it just for home?


Pete.

:welcome: Jack to the layout section, Congrats on starting your very own shunting Plank :thumbs:

The plan you and Dad have come up with should be an interesting one to shunt :scratchchin: a few hours of fun per session esp if you use car cards etc for the shunting order like on Lindenford.

I like that you have a Alco RS 2/3? Hiding at the end of the train one of my favourites I must say.

If you need any more track bits let me know Jack and if it's in the box you can have it

Going to watch this topic with interest.

Pete I hope that Jack and Gary do exhibit the model railway when they finish it, we need more young people like Jack out on the exhibition scene with layouts of their own. :thumbs:

Currently it's Gary and Jack exhibiting wouldn't it be good if it was the other way round Jack and Gary present Jay Dubyew Nth Yard :thumbs:

Hi Jack,

A fantastic start to your layout thread. I get the impression that this will be a blinder as you will have picked up so many ideas from helping your dad on the other layouts at home.

I'm looking forward to seeing what's planned and following your experiences along the way.

A great ambassador for our junior section and a force to be reckoned with in the future in the seniors.

Thanks for posting your new thread up.

Cheers

Toto

Pete, one day I'm hoping that I can exhibit it.

Chris, no it is not an RS-2/3, it is a RSD-4/5, in Pennsylvanian Railroad colours. It was dad's loco that he was going to change  into a 40 class.

Toto, maybe one day I'll be as good as dad, but for now he is helping me with building the layout.

Paul, might have the tracks down by the end of the weekend.

Ian, thank you.

As I said earlier, here are some pics of my loco and wagons.

My RSD-4/5 diesel. It has a dcc decoder in it, but I will use dc.



Dad bought me these next few wagons off ebay.







These two hopper wagons were given to me by a family friend, (thanks Harold).



I bought these next 4 wagons at the Forestville exhibition.





The two cabooses were from ebay.



Dad will help me change the couplings to Kadees. Dad has all the wood for the baseboard and I have all the track now.

Chow, Jack. :cool:

Hi Jack,

Well done so far on your layout. I remember when your Dad drew it up on a piece of paper in my shed and I was thinking at the time that it will be quite complicated to shunt........but that`s good!!!

You need something where you have to concentrate on what moves you make.......a bit like a puzzle.

If it`s too easy you will lose interest.......well I would anyway.????

By the way I have some American wagons you can have. They are old Tyco but they would scrub up OK if you and your Dad did some kit bashing on them.

Let me know if you`re interested and we`ll work out how to get them over to you.

:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

That's some collection you've got there. Looking forward to seeing them on the track when you get it laid.

Thanks very much for posting up these pictures. I like seeing all the different wagon types and that loco is an impressive sight.

Cheers

Toto

Jack has had a delivery of the single slip, rail joiners and some Proto 2000 wagon kits from Hattons. The wagon kits were a bargain at 7.00 each when 'Dad' spotted them. !!



Cheers, Gary, aka Dad. :mrgreen:
