Mile End Park
Set 1935 - 1939
Mile End Park is a fictitious layout based between London Liverpool St Station and Stratford, the aim of the GER was to have a line which would run out of Bethnal Green to Homerton, taking traffic out of Stratford allowing trains to run further onto the other London Suburban routes. However, the GER began building the route and work stopped as the GER became the LNER in 1923. So the money and the idea dried up, as the station became a small terminus, with an Island platform and good's sidings.
The layout depicts a miserable day on a normal day to day of the working London Suburban route. The aim of the layout is to present how the LNER operated the 'Jazz Service' on a basic terminus station, demonstrating a close representation of the famous incentive service with a variety (ex)GER, LNER locomotives, and Rolling Stock.
