‘Staines West’ takes shape

Model Rail (UK) - - Backscene -

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.
