Features: Ashdan Jct, Western, 1970s

Published 6 June 2017, 11:58

Set in the West Midlands during the 1970s, Barry Platt's 'OO' gauge digital sound layout is full of BR blue nostalgia and features a wide variety of locomotive-hauled freight and passenger trains.

Inspired by his spotting days at Birmingham New Street and Reading, the layout represents the Western Region's transition from Diesel Hydraulics to InterCity 125 High Speed Trains (HSTs), together with plenty of suitable traction from other regions passing through too.

Ashdan Junction featured in the July 2017 (HM121) issue of Hornby Magazine.
