I ‘ad that (Andy and Steve Miller)

Built over a period of 5 months, although the collecting and planning started eight years ago, this layout is three rail in the style of the old Hornby Dublo, but is a fully scenic layout. It measures 16 x 5 feet including the fiddle yard that lies behind the scenic front. It is a continuous run layout with two lower level and one higher level circuit and in addition there is a shuttle at the front. The scenic features, as you will see from the pictures, include a station, goods sidings, and an engine shed complete with turntable.

The layout will be exhibited at the Weymouth Model Railway Exhibition in November 2014.
