‘Staines West’ takes shape
For those who don’t follow my blog (www.model-rail.co.uk/new-blog/)
or Model Rail’s Facebook page, I’ve started building an ‘N’ gauge layout around three walls of a small spare room in my former-railway station house. Originally, I suspect it was the porter’s room, and one corner is occupied by a substantial chimney breast, while there’s another door through to the former stationmaster’s office. Despite these obstructions, it leaves me with a run of 20ft from doorway to doorway enough for an ‘N’ gauge shelf layout. Work has already started - by the time you read this the terminus station building will be finished - and another potential Model Rail project will be under way.
I’m particularly keen to capture the view of the train through the open doors. Since this was taken, the building is nearly finished.
