Barton Hill

Description based on material supplied by the layout owner

Barton Hill  
Stan Potter N gauge 2mm scale

Until recently when travelling either North or East from Bristol Temple Meads you could view from the train window the English, Welsh and Scottish Railways deport of Barton Hill.

This is now hidden by more recent buildings, but just a few years ago it was a Rail Express Services Depot hosting a range of red liveried postal rolling stock. This model is intended to give an impression of that depot.

Baseboard construction is of plywood, Peco track is laid on a cork base and electric point motors are a mixture of Peco and Seep. Railfreight wagons are fitted with Peco uncouplers to enable "hands off" operation by means of strategically placed electro magnets.

Some modelers license is used so that I can run what I like to enable me to play trains.
