Mark II

Description based on material supplied by the layout owner

Mark II  
John Phipps OO9 gauge 4mm scale

The first Mark layout was in existence for some twenty years and was showing its age, so it was decided that the time was right to build Mark II. The track plan is similar, with the addition of a siding for loco coal and water. The station area uses most of the buildings off the original layout and these are nearly all concrete structures, as are the platform, fencing and lamp posts.

The period is set in the fifties and the locos and rolling stock are a rather motley collection. There is a steam engine for passenger trains, a diesel for freight and ED the engineering department engine.
