What makes this layout great?
It’s bold. let’s face it, most of us don’t have the space for an ‘o’ gauge layout - but stephen has gone ahead and built one anyway. ‘severn tunnel east’ doesn’t have any points and it doesn’t have any curves, but it does tick all the right boxes as far as stephen is concerned. he set out to build a layout where he could run his ‘o’ gauge stock and a few wagons or carriages, and that’s what he’s achieved. In addition, he’s afforded himself the opportunity to model in a larger scale and he hasn’t wasted the chance. ‘severn tunnel east’ is an expertly crafted layout. It might be small, but it’s taken me longer to write this layout article than usual. why? because I can’t stop admiring the photographs. It’s a truly stunning build!
