You clicked on the Harding Yard Layout in the Train Room.

Thank you for stopping by the Train Room.

The centerpiece of my NL&R layout was the Harding Yard: 11 feet long, two feet wide, 55 remote turnouts, a powered turntable, and a very innovative control. The yard is more or less intact, needing a few weeks work to be put back in shape.


The Harding Yard is here in the Institute's Train Room. I am trying to spend some time each day repairing and re-wiring, until it is operational, hopefully soon.

Once it's done, you're invited over to see it, and I'll put what I can of it here on, our website.

The yard almost exactly duplicates the diagram above, except the real yard has a few more connecting tracks, and the parallel tracks are a little farther apart than in the diagram.
