Vintage O Gauge mostly Hornby exhibition layout.
Featured Extensively in the February 2016 edition of the Hornby Railway Collectors' Association journal, this almost unique Vintage O gauge layout is mainly Hornby with a strong Southern Railway bias, but all of the "Big Four" companies are represented. Layout consists of four platform through station with avoiding loop, small goods yard, two further goods sidings, and motive power depot with turntable. Most points are power operated with one or two hand points which we get spectators to operate for us. There is also a two road fiddle yard to facilitate stock changes. Plans are in hand to increase the fiddle yard by adding an extra 5 roads to form a branch terminus which will double as a fiddle yard.
Up to 5 simultaneous train movements can be happening at any one time, and the layout is able to replicate all of the train movements that one might find on a large through station on the full-sized railway in the 1930s.
Originally built in 1959 and exhibited in 1960 and 1962 by the late Laurie Tandy, this layout has been renovated in 2015 and was exhibited for the first time in 53 years by his children in October 2015.
