I used to ac­com­pany pho­tog­ra­pher Mar­tyn Barn­well on lay­out shoots. Chris Evans’ lay­out oc­cu­pied a com­plete room, in­clud­ing al­coves which had once been a built-in wardrobe. I loved the way so much de­tail had been worked into the space, al­low­ing the main room space to house the junc­tion sta­tion, lo­co­mo­tive de­pot and even, if I re­call cor­rectly, the Bri­tan­nia tubu­lar bridge. It helped, too, that Chris made good use of old Hornby-dublo, in­clud­ing the ‘short’ Mk 1 coaches. Th­ese al­lowed him to run longer trains. I grew up with those coaches so their short­ness never both­ered me. Chris Evans felt the same.
