Mile End Park
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 to Mile End Park going towards other parts of the GER/LNER Suburban working, taking traffic away from 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 by the 30's the money dried up for extension, as the station became a small terminus, with an Island platform and coach sidings.
The layout depicts grey sky's over London representing the 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.
