Site seeing – April 15

While I am still on the mend, with one more surgery to complete, I’ve not been too interested in doing much of anything. However, today while looking for some inspiration for the HVL’s loco shed I came across a great layout that I really had to share.

Site 1: Worcester Road
It’s not often that you see a 1 gauge (1:32nd scale) layout at a show, in fact I’ve not seen one here in my area since we’ve been back from overseas. However, that does not mean that they are not out there. Once case in point was Worcester Road.

Worcester Road is a straight-road, 10 feet x 2 feet engine shed layout. Operated from the front, the scenic/diorama board is 6 feet in length and the fiddle yard board is 4 feet in length. It took ten years to build.

There is a video from the Eastleigh Model Railway show (in 2011) that shows a great layout idea, well executed and displayed. You can watch that here:

There’s also a great build blog on the RMWeb forum (now archived) that you can read through. Link here

I hope you enjoy reading about the layout as much as I did.
