Layouts we Love: A layout is never finished…

I am a member of Wisbech Model Railway Club and each month we receive copies of The Railway Magazine Guide To Modelling at our clubroom, which I always look forward to reading, says Daniel Cousins.

As the months have gone by I feel the magazine is improving each time and I enjoyed the January edition (Whimsical Layouts and Go Walking To Improve Your Scenics in particular).

I would like to share pictures of my N-gauge model railway named Edale. Edale started out as small branch line copied from a Peco Track Plan book.

Through club contacts with the organisers of Dereham Model Railway Exhibition, Edale was exhibited at the 2010 Dereham exhibition. Since 2010 Edale has been extended to an overall size of 9ft by 4ft and now includes lots of scenic interests such as a village fair, camp site, allotments, scrapyard and a harvest scene to name a few.

The layout has supported the club’s open days a few times exhibiting alongside our club’s OO-gauge layout, Hungate Bridge. Edale’s recent scenery refresh saw a new section added, an embankment featuring a main road and new back scenes. I also had the pleasure of exhibiting Edale at the 2017 Bressingham model railway exhibition. As it is often said a layout is never finished and that’s the case for Edale as more changes and developments are planned in the future.
