Oxford Victoria

Description based on material supplied by the layout owner

Oxford Victoria  
Ron Alcock OO gauge 4mm scale

This layout, which is a direct crib from the famous Timesaver type lay- outs which are very popular in North America, was built in response to a Chairman's Challenge made to Oxford M.R.C. members, for a working model railway in 8 square feet.

The layout shows a small suburban station somewhere in the outskirts of Oxford. I have supposed that the Metropolitan Railway did actually build the proposed line from Quainton Road to Oxford.

The station entrance is loosely based on the similar structure at Quorn on the Great Central London extension.
