Set in the industrial grime of the West Midlands "Soho Yard" is a fictitious modern day TMD yard loosely representing Saltley. It was completed in 2007 and was featured in Model Rail in March 2009, the basic concept of the layout was to build it to exhibition standards and small enough to fit in the back of the car. an oval track runs around the 4'10"x 2'6" baseboard into a 4 lane fiddle yard, the TMD yard branches of the mainline into the sidings of which there are 4 off, at the other end of the yard there are 2 roads that run through the depot building into the re-fueling area. To the rear of the yard there is a raised industrial area complete with modern day industrial units. The majority of the buildings are kit bashed and heavily weathered, a good dose of graffiti is daubed onto the depot perimeter wall. There are plenty of cameo scenes to keep the punters attetion as well as coloured light signals that change via toggle switches. On a busy day you can see locomotives of classes 37, 47, 56, 60, and many 66s. The odd 156 unit make a appearance now and then, in the bottom right hand corner there is a small section of urban brum canal and the backscene is of images that have been taken off the internet enlarged and applied to plywood. Soho Yard made it's exhibition debut in early October '09 at our local Show where it was a popular exhibit.
