London Festival of Railway Modelling – 2016 – #3

Good evening,
Tonight we are looking at ESNGBlogs final part of his report from the London Festival of Railway Modelling

My final post on ‘Ally Pally’ is to look at O gauge, the ‘senior scale.’  There seems to be a vogue for O gauge shunting layouts at present.  The Model Railway Club’s Happisburgh Goods (pronounced ‘Haze-burr’) models a Great Eastern Railway goods yard in BR days.  It was originally part of the full terminus layout that was on the exhibition circuit for a number of years.  The main layout was sold, but the good yard lives on.

Dubmill Sidings was a long, rambling shunting layout in BR days, that featured some excellent diesels, generally left at random in sidings.  I really liked the (?Heljan?) Falcon, precursor of the ubiquitous Class 47s.  There was also some very nice rolling stock on display.  I have always liked the ‘Prestwin’ hopper since I made an Airfix kit of one.
