Alan Drewett N gauge 2mm scale

Instead of a whole station my layout represents part of a station with platforms running into the hidden section blanked by a concrete wall at one end and also under a road bridge at the other. This not only avoids having to build multiple aspect signals, ticket barriers and the like but gives the illusion of a much bigger station - perhaps even a through one. Equally such scenic devices strengthen the idea of the station not just being in an angled cutting like Gatwick but part of a very moden cut-and-cover railway - as used for the Heathrow Express for example.
