Inspiration #2, and Authenticity from Warley
From the earlier post from-warley you could almost think I’ve gone all Southern returning to my roots and all that stuff! Well fear not, the Forest of Dean is still very much in my thoughts regarding a larger multi location layout. Amongst Warley’s O gauge exhibits this year was a layout ‘Staple Edge’ clearly based on Ruspidge and Eastern United Colliery.
I spent quite a bit of time watching this layout, as Ruspidge/Eastern United is one of the key locations I’d like to include on my scheme. One item I collected at Warley was the latest book from Wild Swan Publishing WildSwan, ‘Authentic Model Railway Operation’ written by Martin Nield ISBN 9781912038008. The book is written as a comprehensive introduction to working a layout prototypically, and also covers design aspects with pointers on elements to look for in the layout design stage.
