This is my first visit to your layout pages and first time on this forum for a while. I am really impressed with your model but it has given me a bit of a shock.
I am building a model of Westerham as well, although mine is set in the 1930s.
I lived in Knockholt as a child and have some vague memories of the station just as it was being closed.
I started my research back in 2011 and entered the diorama competition with a small section with the signal box. I have continued the research and built my baseboards and laid some of the track but space for the layout has been a problem.
I have just moved house and now have a room solely for my railway use so I am now making some progress.
I am particularly interested in your depiction of the Crown and the other surrounding buildings. I have been unable to find many decent pictures apart from the David Gould book and a couple of others and they show very little of the area. I have less space to show the Crown and the school so they are being shown on the backscene. I took some real pictures of the old school and altered them on my computer and printed a piece to put on the backscene. I have been desperately searching for pictures of the Crown and got one showing it in the 1930s before it was painted. I hope to model it in low relief but will only have about 10mm of space to fit it in.
I am currently working on the granary that you have built extremely well. I haven't a clue as to what the non railway side looked like. Is yours from memory or pictures?
I will try to get some pictures of my layout efforts and some details of the locomotives I am building / converting to suit the 1930s timetable.
