Gauge: 'OO' | Period: 1960s | Region: Eastern | Operating team: Double O Gauge Association
Foldham is set in the end of the steam period with the old order gradually being taken over by new diesel traction. The layout is placed in the Norfolk and Suffolk coast area, on the Eastern section of the Eastern Region of British Railways. Foldham represents a truncated branch line that survives (just) because of agriculture, a National Coal Board (NCB) distribution depot and a holiday camp nearby on the coast. Along with some NCB workings there is agricultural traffic to and from a local private Tramway which is very busy during harvest and planting seasons. The station loop provides a convenient run around for freight traffic from an M.O.D storage depot further down the line. Tourist traffic to the architecturally significant Foldham hall provides visits with renown seafood meals and tours around the hall. Foldham features in HM173 – November 2021, on sale October 7 2021.
