Hornsey Broadway

Description based on material supplied by the layout owner

Hornsey Broadway WEBSITE  
Kier Hardy EM gauge 4mm scale

This layout is based on North London circa 1970, and features a section of main line with adjacent locomotive depot.

With the total scenic section measuring 24ft long by 3ft deep, Homsey Broadway fits into the same footprint as previously built layouts, forming a continuous circuit when matched with its end curves and stock storage yard.

A small section of this project is presented here today, showing the differing levels and a flyover which typify the route out of Kings Cross, giving the slower trains a chance to cross the main lines without interruption.

Construction of the open-frame baseboards is entirely plywood for strength and lightness, with EM gauge C&L track and copper-clad pointwork.
