Bullo Pill

This 0 gauge point-to-point shunting layout is based on the docks area of a ‘pill’ (the word Pill being Welsh for tidal inlet) off the River Severn in the UK. It is based loosely on the real Bullo Dock. The principal activity in the docks is that of transferring minerals from rail wagons to canal barges.

The layout consists of two modules made of foam boards and plywood. Track is mainly Peco with mechanically-operated, handmade points. A number of mechanical devices adds interest to operation including a loco turntable, three wagon turntables, a loco/wagon traverser, two mineral tippers and a lifting bridge.
