This page was created for the model enthusiast – The pictures are of my own”00″ layout “Carlington“, situated in a 12 ft x 10 ft bedroom, and when I am not photographing the real thing I like to relax with a spot of model making. Although I am a novice, I try my hardest to make the scene look convincing. The Layout is Based on the mid sixties – North eastern region plus a touch of Modellers licence, i.e. some of my favourite LMS locos make frequent appearances. Some of the main features are:

  • All signals work (both colour light & semaphore)
  • All point work are electrofrog & electrically powered
  • Up to 4 trains can be worked at once
  • Auto shuttle serves mine area – usually with  two NCB J94s
  • Yard Lighting
  • Peco Turntable is electrically operated
  • Auto shuttle also operates the Narrow gauge line.

Some of the pictures appeared in the Model Magazine ” BRITISH RAILWAY MODELLING”  – August 2008
