Marsh Chipping

Description based on material supplied by the layout owner

Marsh Chipping  
David Westwood N gauge 2mm scale

It is the early 1960's. You are returning to the West Midlands via Oxford and Worcester after a hard week in London. It is midsummer and the sun is warm through the carriage window. You are drowsy and you doze off. Somewhere north of Oxford you wake suddenly. You look out of the window passing through a country station. You just catch the name "Marsh Chipping" and as your eyes close once more you think, "strange, I don't remember that on the way up."

Marsh Chipping is, of course hctional, but the track plan is based on Chipping Campden (with an added branch) and the goods shed on the one at Moreton-in—Marsh; hence the name.
