Alstone Servicing Depot

Description based on material supplied by the layout owner

Alstone Servicing Depot  
Robert Webb OO gauge 4mm scale

Alstone Servicing Depot is a OO gauge layout based in the mid 1980's. Layout dimensions are only 6 feet by 2 feet as I wanted a model railway I could quickly set up and play trains with at home.

The track used in standard Peco Streamline, buildings are a mixture of Bachmann and Hornby. The water tower is scratch built and is based on the water tower that stood in Bristol Bath Road depot. Scenery is a mixture of Woodland Scenics, Busch and Penduke models.

The layout is based on the Western Region although from time to time locomotives from other regions visit, much like the real Bristol Bath Road was in this era.

I chose the 1980's as I have fond childhood memories of days trains spotting with my dad and friends. Speaking of my Dad I would like to thank him for his help and advice while building this layout.
