This 4mm/OO gauge layout isnt set in any particular area or era, though its veering towards mid 80's. The layout represents a small goods yard in an industrial estate, on an urban branch. The name comes from the Old English word for Chaff, indeed there is a Seething Lane in London, which in days gone by, was where grain was threshed.
The trackwork is Peco code 75, laid straight onto a foamboard-topped ply trackbed, glued to a 3x1 timber frame. Train control is by NCE PowerCab DCC control. Points are controlled in the time honoured analogue way, but motorisation is by servos via a Megapoints control board. Stock will be a mixture of ready to run and kit built items, fitted with Kadee couplings, uncoupling undertaken by neodymium permanent magnets.
The majority of structures will be scratchbuilt using foamboard or ply formers, covered in embossed plasticard, with some off the shelf detailing parts. Total size will be 6ft by 14in, over 2 boards. The layout has been designed to be extended at both ends should the urge arise.
