Glen Fiddich o gauge layout

Recommended Posts

A 7mm layout built by a model railway club in slough. I've saved it from the scrap heap and repaired it so it can go back on the circuit.

 

Appearing at the large scale and garden rail show in leamington this weekend

Looks like you've made a good rescue there Gordy, well spotted!  Looks a bit faded in the colour department, particularly the grass, but thats not a huge problem to remedy.

Good on you!

Dave.

Hi Gordy, A great set of pics and I feel that the grass is almost right, a very natural hazy summer look to it.

 

You have been very lucky to rescue such a nice looking layout, but please can you reveal its size as I do enjoy Mico Layouts and this looks about 10 ft.

Can't believe this was about to be scrapped. Most clubs here in Australia would show this to death over a 10 year period to get their money's worth.

 

Good catch!
