Ipswich Model Railway Exhibition 2019 Layouts
A ‘0’-16.5 narrow gauge layout of an East Anglian maltings set in the 1950’s era. A mixture of narrow and standard gauge lines with barges arriving with coal and barley for the maltings.
An N gauge layout with fully functional yard with Goods, Coal & Brewery sidings. After a journey around the layout, the trucks are then shunted back into their respective sidings. Click the pic to see a video of the layout in action.
A narrow gauge line that might have been. Set in the early 1950s with a mix of steam and diesel motive power. Whilst road competition is yet to bite you can already see signs of cost cutting on the railway.
A fictional P4 gauge 35 mile cross country route from Colchester to Stowmarket serving mainly agricultural community and villages. It survived until Dr. Beeching wielded the axe in 1967.
An O gauge layout set in the village of Tigley (between Totnes and Plymouth) close to the foothills of Dartmoor. The yard survived the Beeching cuts in the 1960’s and is still in existence in the early 1970’s, before the TOPS numbering system came into use.
