Maiden Lane features a diesel servicing depot in North London

Owner: Peter Watson

Scale/gauge: 00 gauge


Description:   After modelling for more years than I care to remember in various scales, thought it was time to try 00 gauge, inspired by the new high quality models and modern range of ready-made buildings. The layout is based around the North London line in the Kings Cross area, with a connection to the East Coast Main Line. The central feature is a diesel servicing area. The period modelled is the early to mid 1960s - the green diesel era. Plus a few steam locos on trip freights around London on the NLR.

Size of layout: 16ft long x 2ft deep

Floor area required: 16ft long x 5ft deep (opearted from the back)

Power requirements: 1 x 13amp socket

Number of operators: 3

Transport requirements: 1 car
