Loosely Warren

Description based on material supplied by the layout owner

Loosely Warren  
Ann Silby Z gauge 1.5mm scale

After purchasing three Z-gauge class 47 locomotives and a considerable amount of rolling stock, I decided to build a small diarama based on the famous Dawlish sea wall. When asked where it was, I said nowhere in particular, but it was loosely based on Dawlish, to which the enquirer replied 'Loosely Warren' (Dawlish Warren).

The track (Märklin) was laid and the sea wall (S D Mouldings, N gauge) was put in place. The red cliffs, so characteristic of the area, were made from polystyrene and plaster. Since the opening of the Channel Tunnel, I have used modellers' licence and visiting locomotives and rolling stock from the continent often make guest appearances. The layout is powered by two standard Märklin controllers.
