MONKSWOOD represents a station, built in the hills of East Lancashire, which due to the lie of the land, was built higher than the engine shed. This shed provides maintenance for locos from the nearby quarries . Occasionally, wagons from these quarries are brought through to a small yard behind the shed for storage etc. Wagons are shunted in and out of a nearby distribution warehouse using kadee couplings.
Locos and DMU’s on the layout are DCC controlled, some also being fitted with sound.
