Following from part 1 (click here to read); today we look at three more layout’s that were to be found at Southampton Model Railway Exhibition 2013.
Patterdale North – 4mm scale, 00 gauge – Anthony Buffin, Southampton
This 00 gauge layout is loosely based on the west coast between Blackpool/Preston and Fleetwood. It is influenced by Anthony Buffin’s experiences of watching football club trains hauled by class 31’s, 37’s and 47’s between Manchester and Liverpool
Millford – 4mm scale, 00 gauge – Woking Miniature Railway Society Modellers, Surrey
Knockley Gate – 7mm finescale, 0 gauge – Ian Pope, Oxfordshire
Knockley Gate is an interpretation of what a line extended from end of the Oakwood branch line to connect with Coleford may have looked like. The layout is a representation of how the Midland and Great Western jointly purchased Severn & Wye & Severn Bridge Railway would have looked like post-1894.
