Rowington for Shrewley

Description based on material supplied by the layout owner

Rowington for Shrewley  
Dick & Felicity Wright-Hewins OO gauge 4mm scale

This layout was never intended for exhibition and was a source of amusement for enthusiasts in the back room of the little shop I used to run.

It was built to OO finescale standards, the track is S.M.P. All the signals including route indicators and dummies work via H&M point motors along with the points.

The period depicted is 1922, just before grouping, so I can run all sorts of liveries in through trains.

You can observe the following features: 1912 Lake (crimson) coaches, red distant signals and do look out for the very tall duplicate signals. Locomotives, stock and buildings are in the main kits or scratch built. Occasionally I will run one of Felicity's locomotives namely, Brunel and Thunderbolt both with big brass domes.
