This month’s Layouts We Love is dedicated to a rather special layout, the Jordan Reid Model Railway Project.
Like many grandads Kevan Adams has a grandson who loves his grandad’s model railway, but in June 2016 when Jordan was diagnosed with ATRT (atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumour), an extremely rare type of brain tumour that mainly affects children under age three, Kevan left his model railway to concentrate on creating a new one to raise awareness of childhood cancers, and raise money for Sheffield Children’s Hospital as well as Jordan’s bucket list.
It is hoped that the OO gauge 20ftx8ft layout will be finished by the summer in order for it to attend a couple of exhibitions, including the big one, Warley, at the end of the year.
“We started with donations of equipment, funds and bits and pieces about 18 months ago,” says Kevan, but with exhibitions booked for the layout this year the end is now in sight and a final push is needed to bring the project to its conclusion.
