Background and Planning
At it's AGM in 2009, the Epsom and Ewell's Model Railway Club decided to build a new N gauge layout to complement our existing OO, P4, and O gauge layouts. A vague decision was made that it should depict a more modern railway than the existing layouts which cover the LSWR, SR, GWR and BR blue periods.
After much thought, a plan was drawn up to make a model based on Hinksey Yard, just south of Oxford, and set it in the present day.
The track plan:
At the end of November last year the committee gave financial approval and the Chairman suggested that it would be nice if it could be shown as a layout under construction at our exhibition in April at NESCOT. The aim is to see if we can get enough built to show trains running and give the public a flavour of what the layout will eventually be like. This would be quite a challenge as normally our club likes to take its time building layouts (20+ years not being unusual!)
Next step the baseboards.
