O9 Layout For Sale

My O9 layout, Thomas and Sons, is for sale.

The overall size of the layout is 45 inches (114cm) long by 18 inches (46cm) deep and the central area is 23 inches (58cm) high. You will need another 2 inches (5cm) depth (approx) to operate the traversers (space to push them backwards).

The scenic area represents the yard of a small engineering works. It is 21 inches (53 cm) wide by 18.5 inches (47 cm) deep. There are two traversers one either side of the scenic area. Each one has 4 lanes. Each lane is approx 10.5 inches (26cm) long.

Designed to be operated by sitting in front of the scenic area. Baseboard is a mixture of pine, mdf and ply. I can lift and move it on my own but because of the size and shape it is easier if there are two of you.

The layout is wired for DCC with a built in NCE Power Cab Power Supply Panel and three Cobalt point motors. These will work via the DCC but I haven’t set them up and instead the points are switched by the push to make switches on the front of the layout. The layout has built in LED lights.

All the yard clutter and figures are included in the sale. They’re not fixed down so you can easily rearrange them. Dust cover included too.

It would be easy to convert it into a “one loco in steam” DC layout, there’s a “2 wires in” connection that could be easily wired up to DC. I think you’d need to swop the point motors.

Not included: legs or stand for the layout, locos, rolling stock, wagon loads, controller.

I’m looking for around £200

Collect from Stapleford approximately 4 miles south of Cambridge and a few miles north of Duxford Imperial War Museum (if you fancy a day out).

I’m selling it because I haven’t operated it for over a year and I’d like the space for my next project (another O9 layout!)

If you are interested, or if you have any questions, please contact me.
