Trying to find a Layout

Afternoon All!

 

I hope you're all well? A bit of an odd one; I've seen somewhere on the Carendt website a small 00 layout of a fictional LU terminus.

I was wondering if it anyone had the name of a link as it interested me and now I've spent two days trying to find it!

 

I think it was described as a Branch off of the District Line, with a GER type station building and two-car surface stock train in the platform.

Possibly was just a line into the platform and another into a siding with a kickback to hide the fiddleyard at the front. 

 

I know it's a long-shot but it captured my interest and I am frustrated I didn't bookmark it! I'm fairly certain I googled it afterwards and they layout looked like it had been expanded upon slightly - perhaps was originally a competition layout entry? 

 

Kind Regards,

Gary

Thank you to anyone who has had a look - I've found what I was looking for. 

Roxeth by Ian Buck a very compact terminus designed to fit onto the footprint of 3x A4 sheets of paper. 

 

Have a good Evening all!

Kind Regards,

Gary

I note that the original that you're referring to looks like it was indeed a competition entry to fit a layout on three A4 sheets of paper back in 2010.

Ian does appear to have a built a larger version at a later date, but it doesn't look like the original model was extended - it looks like a completely different layout, with the name and the builder being the only common points.  Presumably, the original version was a little restrictive in an operational sense.

Thanks I suspect you are quite right upon looking back it appears that both versions are quite different aside from naming.

It does look limited in operational scope but potentially useful for a quick project - it's interesting as I had planned a very similar layout the only difference in my plan is that the platform was an island with a shuttle line at the back.

 

Kind Regards,

Gary
