The Main Board is our flagship board that is the oldest and most complex layout the club has.

Overview

The board is "OO" gauge and features two main loops, with double sidings and an inner set of sidings that terminate at two station. There is also a inline station on one of the main loops.

Construction

The board was built over many years be different people and is a mix of construction techniques. It breaks into two parts for easy storage. The points and rails are individually wired to control box that has a picture of the layout to allow direct control. The board can support up to four moving trains at any one time.

Future

Over time many of the new control techniques introduced for the Industrial Board may be retrospectively fitted to this board.
