The layout is another exercise in large scale minimum gauge modelling In a small space. The stressed ply monocoque baseboard deliberately provides the opportunity for scenic and structure bridge and trestle modelling below as well as above the level of the railroad. Track is Peco and Fleischmann the 10" radius curve on the bridge deck. The two Porter locos No 6 is the "signature locomotive" for the project , the vertical boilered loco, and stock are scratch built in styrene and timber on Hornby chassis.
The articulated steam loco has an Athearn chassis. Extensive use has been made of distressed balsawood for themodelling of structures. The intent is to portray the activity at a reversing point in a mountainous setting, and in so doing it is hoped that the use of two locomotives for switching manoeuvres will be seen as appropriate rather than contrived. Within the scene is an ore loading bin, and another is imagined to behigherup the line. Gradients arepresumed to be severe and therefore all trains are short a maximum of three bogie cars with the locomotive at the rear facing uphill in order to keep the firebox crown coveredwithwater.
It being believed that good design is essential for all aspects of an exhibition layout particular attention has been paid to the function and ergonomics of the fiddle yard. This is on two levels, includes a traverser in the lower yard, and incorporates an ore car tippler so that operation is asmuch as possible "hands off".
When the railway arrived there was the expectation that the town would grow into a seaside resort in the same way as Bournemouth or Weymouth had done. In our version of events not only did the town become a successful resort but the harbour continued to flourish with the export of coal from Somerset and South Wales , shingle from nearby Chesil Beach , rope and netting manufactured locally and the importation of timber from Scandinavia.
Some light shipbuilding was also carried out. Goods trains bring supplies into the town and service the harbour via a short branch line. Extensive carriage sidings and loco facilities are located off the main " [O] - Littleton By David D'arcy , Southampton. It was a single line route with station including passing loop, kickback siding, goods yard with head Shunt, Littleton is a freelance layout based on BR Southern Electric practice, set on the south coast of England near Littlehampton.
The track plan is based on the "Minories" plan devised by Cyril Freezer some fifty years ago.
The main station boards were originally built by Brian Thomas in London and the layout has been extended with carriage sidings fronting the fiddle yard. Semaphore signals are operated by model aircraft servos and colour light signals are from the Roger Murray range. Complete with flashing lights! Layout does not resemble any location, just a compact layout to show how much can be put into a small space, yes, you do not need a double bedroom, full size loft,or a double garage.
Dream on! It all started out with a visit to Chris Challis model shop, when I said to Chris that I was thinking of building a new layout and he said to me why not try a P4 layout.

So with some guidance from him and numerous other people and books by messers Rice and Norman and articles in MRJ and others. It has arrived at a finished but not complete state. All track and points are ply and rivet construction hand built by myself as are the locomotives and rolling stock all from kits as I had nothing suitable. Most of the buildings are scratchbuilt as there are no kits available. Point operation is by rod and bell crank and the wiring follows the logic principle as described by Trevor Lloyd-Lee in his book.
As mentioned earlier it is complete but not finished as I am still looking for more information on the subject so if any one has any information or photographs " [OO] - Museum of Transport By Robin Brogden , Heysham, Morcambe.

Railway exhibits are housed in a purpose-built Railway Gallery where may be found Locomotives, Carriages, Signals, Models and other railway artefacts. The building is glass-fronted with the roof removed for maximum visibility. A Miniature Railway based on N-gauge operates around this area and beyond. In the first dock is moored a freelance Edwardian passenger steamer St Olaf and a retired coastal Lightship, based on the Spurn Light. The layout has recently been extended and partly rebuilt to provide space for many new features.
A second deep-water dock is available for future maritime exhibits. A canal basin is included in this area with a working canal boat.
Two new locomotive sheds provide additional display and operational areas for the standard gauge exhibits and visiting locos. The station for the Miniature Railway is located here.

The route's northern terminus is the Chestnut Hill bus loop at the intersection of Germantown Avenue and Bethlehem Pike, located adjacent to the Chestnut Hill West regional rail station and a short distance from the Chestnut Hill East station.
Overnight service short-turns at Ontario Street near Temple University Hospital , only serving the Germantown Avenue portion of the route. Route 23 was established sometime prior to as the Germantown Avenue Line , and ran from Germantown Depot to 8th and Dauphin streets. In the line was extended to the 4th and 8th Street trolleys and renamed the Pelham Line. The northern terminus was extended to the Bethlehem Pike Loop in , while the southern terminus was extended to 11th Street and Pattison Avenue in , and to 10th Street and Bigler Avenue in On December 29, , the Route 20 trolley on 12th and 13th Streets was abandoned and combined with the 23, which thereafter operated on 11th and 12th Streets just as it does today.
PCC cars were introduced to the line in and , replacing Nearside cars which had operated the route since the teens. The Philadelphia Transportation Company PTC attempted to introduce a fleet of PCCs to the line in , but an insufficient power supply for climbing Chestnut Hill caused these cars to be sent to Luzerne Depot to serve other routes instead. On September 5, , the Route 23 trolleys were moved from Germantown Depot to Luzerne Depot, making Luzerne the operating depot for the six remaining North Philadelphia streetcar routes: 6 , 23, 50 , 53 , 56 , and After the move, the route's PCC all-electric cars were replaced with pre-war PCC "air cars", which incorporated the use of pressurized air to power certain aspects of the car such as sanders for traction in order to provide greater reliability on Germantown Avenue's hills.
By this time, only two trolley lines operated from Luzerne Depot: routes 23 and Along these last two routes, diesels buses were often substituted for months at a time, whenever utility construction occurred along those routes. Gone were the days when contractors were instructed to work around the streetcars. It was simply easier to suspend trolley service.
Trolley service had been bused off and on due to street and trolley track construction, but buses permanently replaced trolleys on February 27, However, weekend streetcar service was restored on the Chestnut Hill portion of the route under the Chestnut Hill Trolley name. In Center City, the Welcome Line trolley operated on 11th and 12th streets between Girard Avenue and Bainbridge Street in , as well as the and holiday seasons. Since then, trolleys service along the Route 23 has been non-existent. In , to make scheduling more manageable, the shorter and more densely-traveled southern segment of the route from Oregon Avenue to Market Street was separated and re-designated Route Routes 23 and 45 make shared stops along 11th and 12th streets between Walnut and Callowhill streets, and SEPTA Key users can make a free transfer between the two routes for same-direction travel.
Route 23 utilizes several short-turn loops or cross-street cutbacks to allow for operational flexibility. The only currently-scheduled short-turn is Germantown Avenue and Ontario Street, which is the southern terminal for all late-night service. All trackage on Germantown Avenue was replaced with new rail since , and trackage on 11th and 12th streets remain with small portions paved over.
