Garfield

Description based on material supplied by the layout owner

Garfield  
Alan Drewett OO gauge 4mm scale

Garfield is a fictional town in the North Cotswolds at the end of a joint London Midland & Scottish and Great Western Railway branch line. The small terminus station has a limited passenger service connecting with trains to Banbury, Rugby and London Marylebone while a small factory, coal merchant and near by quarries generate freight traffic.

On this its first public appearance, Garfield will be set in the 1930's but could also represent earlier or later epochs.

The 6 feet by 15 inch layout was the last to be built in OO gauge by George Lowell of Clevedon. I am indebted to Mike Walker, Robert and Roger Webb and everyone else who has contributed to this project.

By the way can anyone find Garfield the ginger cat?
