WATERSTOCK from West Midlands N Gauge Group in Birmingham

griffinrail@blueyonder.co.uk

 

David Griffin is the contact for this layout and is the Exhibition Co-ordinator of West Midlands N Gauge Club.

Subject: GWR/GCR
Era: Late 1950's-early 1960's
Description: Waterstock is some 20ft long and comprised of 6 ( 4' x 2' ) boards as the main "scenic" model with 4 ( 4'x 1' ) boards for the rear fiddle yard. The track plan can be found on the club's web site, and is an amalgam of Hatton Junction and Yeovil Pen Mill. In this instance Hatton has been moved southwards to rest between Oxford ( Tiddington ) and Thame, and became part of the GWR/GCR joint improvement/expansion of 1897. This saw a better/faster/shorter line for the GWR to Birmingham and access to Marylebone avoiding the Metropolitan line for the GCR. The layout is placed in the 1950's/early 60's period allowing for both steam and early diesel traction to be used, along with a degree of inter regional traffic for variety. Further details and pictures can be found in the September 2007 issue of Railway Modeller.
