Description based on material supplied by the layout owner
Moreton New Shed shows part of a motive power depot (MPD) in the British Railways steam era between the years of 1950-68. It features a large number of kit-built and detailed ready-to-run locomotives.
The scene depicts some quite new locomotive servicing facilities built as an addition to a larger MPD, including facilities for diesel locomotives. Moreton is operated featuring engines from different areas of the country, particularly Scotland. The layout is exhibited to reflect a different regional emphasis that may change several times during the course of an exhibition.
The layout replaces the former 'Moreton Loco' which appeared at exhibitions a few years ago and was sadly ruined by flood water after storms in 2007. Some of the scenic items salvaged from that layout are to be seen on this new locomotive shed scene.
