The NLS map of Lavenham goods yard shows, to me anyway, a very unusual but interesting track layout. Presumably the double circle to the southwest of the main shed is a wagon turntable but is the double circle of significance?
The single circle on the most southerly line is more of a mystery. Is it another wagon turntable, a special form of turnout or a cartographer's error?
Any explanation would be appreciated.
Regards
Tony Money

Please do not send requests for help direct to me via email or PM.

Post your questions on the forum where everyone can see them and add helpful replies.
Hi Tony,

My guess is the outer ring is a retaining wall around the turntable, continuing the line of platform wall alongside the northern track:



The photo shows that area of the yard raised at platform height:

The other circle seems to be an ordinary wagon turntable, used instead of a turnout. The end of that siding looks to be an end-dock.

Would make an attractive model.

regards,

Martin.

http://www.transporttreasury.com/?q=Lavenham will provide six more images of Lavenham and nearby locations.  These  include some rather good shots of pointwork in the yard (some are sleepered leads), and show that shunting by horse was well catered for, as they reveal at least two capstans and a hoop over a ground signal to prevent the tow rope snagging upon it.  The wagon turntable adjacent to the end dock appears to have become redundant, with the line through the goods shed being instead extended up to the dock wall to provide a second end loading facility.

The bridges at each end would provide enormously convenient scenic breaks and make the station one well worth consideration for a model.

Also currently being built in P4 by the North East Essex Area Group of the Scalefour Society.

Lavenham on the Scalefour website

If anyone is interested in joining in the project (modelling in P4 is *not* a requirement) then contact details are on the page.

Cheers

My thanks to Martyn, John, Rodney and Paul for their very helpful responses to my request.
Paul do you think the NEEAG would be prepared to let me have a copy of their Templot plan of the station in return for a contribution to their club funds?
Regards
Tony Money

Hi Tony,

I'll certainly ask for you.  One caveat: I can't recall whether they made any slight tweaks to make it fit baseboard sizes.  I'll find out.

I'm sure that you appreciate (if you've looked at a few of them) that Great Eastern rural stations are sprawling beasts...

Cheers
Paul
