‘STOGUMBER’ FINDS A HOME

Model Rail (UK) - - MODEL NEWS -

Michael Hol­ley’s 13ft by 2ft take on the West Som­er­set Rail­way’s Stogumber sta­tion, which starred in the Sum­mer 2016 is­sue of Model Rail, has a new home… in the West Som­er­set Rail­way’s Stogumber sta­tion! A move abroad for Michael meant that the lay­out was with­out a home, but an agree­ment with Friends of Stogumber Sta­tion meant that it wouldn’t be scrapped. The lay­out moved to the sta­tion on May 8 and is al­ready on dis­play. “The model was not de­signed to be moved and was built into the wall,” Michael told Model Rail. “I was amazed - af­ter it had ar­rived at its new home I wired ev­ery­thing back up and it all still worked! I am re­ally de­lighted that it has found a home in the very place that in­spired it in the first place.”
