Addison Road

Phil Hutchings Layout, Addison Road was the invited guest layout to EM Expo at Bracknell last weekend.

Not only 3mm scale, 14.2 gauge but unique in featuring London Transport underground stock of various types along with the Metropolitan electric locos and Steam locos used by the underground.

In addition there is an abandoned railway and and extensive station building in LT Art Deco style along with trolly buses and other buses from the time.

Worked to an extensive timetable, the layout includes both branch and mainline. A fair bit of concentration is required to operate the layout but enjoyable nevertheless and I got a ply on the Sunday!

Here are the photos.

Phils Layout has recently featured in Hornby magazine.

Ally Pally exhibition

Mr P and I visited the BRM sponsored MRC exhibition at Alexandra Palace yesterday.

Because on engineering works at the Cross we took the London Overground up to Highbury & Islington and then Great Northern to Alexandra Palace.

After a walk up the hill (both wishing we’d caught the bus) and a pint we went round the exhibition.

One observation was that it was a case of hunt the layout due to the vast number of trade stands. Some layouts we had both seen before whilst others were new to us.

O Gauge Guild Spring Show 2019 – Steve’s 009 and 09 Adventure

Saturday the 2nd March gave me a problem. Two exhibitions on the same day. The Norfolk and Suffolk Narrow Gauge Modellers annual show was in Beccles and the O Gauge Guild Spring Show in Kettering. It might have been possible to visit both but my ‘Dad’s Taxi’ duties meant that I didn’t have time. I…
