Skinny Yard

Built By: Steve J

Description:Skinny yard is made up of four modules total. Two doubles act as the yard throats (Skinny Yard Left and Skinny Yard Right) while two singles are located in the middle (Skinny Yard Middle 1 and Skinny Yard Middle 2). The set can be used with 2, 3, or 4 modules. The yard is "skinny" because it is only 210mm (8 1/4") deep.

Skinny yard provides a place to set up and store an extra train on each of the two mainlines. The storage space in the yard is about five feet long when all four modules are used.

Here are a couple of photos of Skinny Yard the Derby City Express in Louisville in 2008:

The two doubles pack up with each other as do the two singles as seen here.
