Shunters Yard is a compact OO gauge layout by Gerry Byrne. The main layout is 4 feet by 1 foot and utilizes Kadee couplers and under-track magnets to enable remote uncouplinng and shunting of trains.

The layout is operated by DCC with a sound chip and speaker located beneath the baseboard, as the locomotive used is too small to have onboard sound.

The layout has a three-way point and a single trailing point which enables interesting an complex shunting operations. The layout also has an operational semaphore signal at the end of the station.
