Layout: Dydley, Western, 1940s
Published 6 June 2017, 12:15
Dydley is a fictitious junction location somewhere south west of Birmingham on the Welsh borders and represents a London, Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS) route with Great Western Railway (GWR) branch, nominally set in the 1930s.
Making great use of its diminutive 4ft x 2ft 6in footprint, the layout amply demonstrates what can be achieved in a limited space and can either be operated in GWR/LMS or BR 1960s period, with minimal changes to the scenic section of the layout.
Owned by the City of Canterbury Model Railway Society, Dydley appeared in the March 2017 (HM117) issue of Hornby Magazine.
