Orpington and District Model Railway Society chose a multi-gauge scenario for its busy 7mm scale industrial layout. MARTIN COOMBS and the operating team reveal how and why it was built - and what is next for its future. Photography, Trevor Jones.
Above: An industrial four-wheel shunter leads a rake of stone laden tippers along the narrow gauge line while a GWR ‘14XX’ 0-4-2T waits for a clear path onto the dual gauge section at Theobald’s Yard. A complex web of sidings makes this an entertaining layout to operate.
