3mm Society, Railway

3mm WestFest 1

Popped along to WestFest today down a Ilton, Somerset where there was a plethora of 3mm layouts on display from Members  all over the South West. Organised by Brian Golding of Lambeth Walk fame the exhibition featured 9 layouts. 

First we have Addison Park by Phil Hutchings which features London Underground stock rarely modelled in the bigger scales even less so in 3mm

   
    
    
    
    
 Next we have Ashbrooke by John Thomas depicting a Midland and South West Junction station in the Cotswolds 

  
    
    
    
    
Johns buildings are modelled from old media called card – remember that, are based on actual buildings. Tracks irk is handbuilt before Peco produced theirs although in  some places Wrenn fibre tracked is used.

More features layouts in Part 2.
