|Tring and District Model
is a model closely based on a real place of the
same name which was situated on the Waverley Route, which used to run
Carlisle and Edinburgh, through the English/Scottish Borders (Closed
1969). The location consisted of nothing more than a small 12 lever
signal box between
Riccarton Junction and Shankend, with a couple of ancilliary huts plus
cottages for the signalmen (The Cottages are off scene on my layout).
signalbox controlled a trailing crossover plus access to a single
remained in place right up until closure of the line.
Based in the period between about 1957 and 65
allows me to run a range of different Eastern Region locos such as
A1's A3's and A4's, all used as often on long fitted freights as
turns, plus a few early Diesels.
The layout is portable and measures 7ft by 2ft on two boards so as to make it fit in my VW Polo.
