This was a project with a difference..
WE used an experimental method of construction, the baseboard frames were constructed from aluminium angle with a sub surface of insulation wall board.
The illustration shows two LNER locos ready to depart.
Trackwork design is based on the old MacDuff station in the North of Scotland. For those familiar with the now closed and forgotten station we have switched the main
platform and bay around to bring the area with most operational interest to the front (i.e. the main platform and run round loop). During construction we decided to keep the run round loop in the rear platform to provide better operation from the model point of view.
MacDuff station was built high above a sandy beach at the sea front and part of our cliff structure can be seen in the picture to the right..
Beyond the station the tracks curve sharply inland (away from the front) as they did on the prototype and end in a four siding fiddle yard behind and parallel to the station.
