We have already purchased our first engine for the layout, GWR 'King' class King Richard II with full digital sound. On the layout will be, Great Western Railway, Southern, London Midland & Scottish and London North Eastern Railway companies known as the 'big four' along with British Railways.
People of all ages will get to see the modern side of the railways as well, often overlooked by modellers.
And of course a separate smaller layout just for Thomas the tank engine and his friends.
Features of the display will be depots for steam and diesel, along with goods yards. A night time display will have various building and signals lit as well as some of the rolling stock to make it a fully immersive experience. And of course what layout will be complete without a mainline station.
Rather than focus on making a layout full of extra detail with only a few trains, ours will be the reverse. We will model small town and country scenes and have lots of track and trains!
