Seven Mill Depot

Seven Mill Depot was created by the Hornby Magazine team in November 2019 for display at the Warley National Model Railway Exhibition. It was built to showcase the potential of 'O' gauge in a relatively compact space and occupies 11ft x 3ft. It models a diesel depot scene with a two road shed, storage sidings, fuelling point and a backdrop of warehouse structures.
