Halsdon Road

7mm Scale – O gauge – Modern Image

The layout represents a fictitious station somewhere in Southern territory, with locos and rolling stock representing the mid-1990s. It has been extended over recent years and still needs a bit of detailing.

To the viewers left is the stabling point of “Halsdon Junction MPD” which allows for the locos to be on display.

To the right the part on view represents the closed “Halsdon Docks” station and what would have been the head shunts for the docks, now a distribution centre.

From my experiences of exhibiting previous layouts, part of the fiddle yards are exposed to save viewers injuring themselves trying to get a look at hidden locomotives etc.

In the last couple of years the layout has been extended to include a station and multi-storey car park.

The only unusual train movement is the scrap trains which are run round in “Halsdon Road” and propelled into the scrap yard off scene under the multi-storey car park.
