Today we have been helping a customer get his layout off the ground after years of trying to get it going. A large space with minimal track and room for lovely flowing scenics.
DC operated with a mix of continental and uk stock.

This Week we have been progressing with this build.
The build is in a 27ft x 7ft 6ins converted garage. It is 00 gauge using mainly Peco code 75 rail and will be operated on DCC including lever frames at each station (aka "signal box") with digital interlocking between signals and points. The layout is dated 1919 and represents a group of fictional small independent railway companies near the north edge of the Forest of Dean and is set in the Hereford / Mitcheldean / Gloucester area. Its main inspiration is the Madder Valley Railway of John Ahern now housed in the Pendon Museum near Didcot. It's a complete system or "small empire" design. The plan also has inspiration from some of C J Freezer's work in the 60s and 70s. Trains will be of branch line style with 2 or 3 4-wheel coaches and goods trains of a maximum of 8 wagons and a brake.

The track plan is end to end with a hidden continuous circuit for testing. The main line runs between two termini via two passing stations. There is a branch line with two passing halts and a small terminus. There's several railway-served industries on the line including a colliery, stone mason's yard, dairy, tinplate works, greaseworks, flour mill, wood distillation plant, quarry and a brewery.This build is in a 27ft x 7ft 6ins converted garage.

Testimonials

I approached Neil @ The Little Layout Company in Oct 2014 about building a diesel depot layout for me. Communication was second to none. The build started in Jan 2015 and was duly completed on time in March 2015. The layout exceeded my expectations and it was a pleasure and privilege to get to know Neil who I now value as a good friend.
A very big 'THANK YOU'
