Tamcester is a large town somewhere between London and Birmingham, served on a loop off the West Coast Main Line. The ‘N’ gauge layout is set in the sectorisation years of British Rail anywhere between the mid 1980s and the early 1990s.
AC Electric locomotives are very much the traction of choice with Intercity, Network SouthEast, Regional Railways, Parcels, Mail and Railfreight all serving or passing through Tamcester. A large mix of trains can be seen in action and in a wide variety of liveries. The four platform station is rarely unoccupied and with the goods loop and fuel sidings, a wide variety of different moves are possible in a relatively confined space.
