A 7/8ths scale micro model railway layout.

Snipe Fen Farm is a 7/8ths scale (22.5mm to the foot or 1.13.7) micro layout. The term "micro" is generally used to describe model railway layouts built in an area of less than 4 square feet, but in 7/8ths there really isn't enough room for any meaningful modelling in that scale which allows for any operating at all. So with Snipe Fen Farm we have gone for the size 7 foot by 2 foot. The scenic section is only 5 foot by 2 foot with a small 2 foot long sector plate off stage.
The layout is unusual in that all the loco's are powered by batteries and are driven by hand, often using controls set in the cabs.
