Lambourn Station is a termini station once on the GWR. Closed in 1975 I hope to re-create it as my new exhibition layout in EM gauge set in 1930-1914
A short history of Britain's broad gauge railways
In 1835, in the early days of railway construction, the Great Western Railway was born. The original main line ran between London and Bristol, a distance of 117 miles (187 kms), which was opened throughout in June 1841. What made the Great Western Railway unusual was the choice of gauge. Instead of building the railway to what became the British standard gauge of 4ft 8½ins, the track was laid to a gauge of 7ft 0¼ins (“broad gauge”).
Over the following 25 years, many of the railways connecting to the Great Western Railway built their lines with broad gauge track, resulting in a network of broad gauge railways extending from London to Bristol, Wolverhampton, South Wales, Weymouth, and westward through the counties of Somerset, Devon and Cornwall to reach Penzance. At its peak in 1868, broad gauge railways covered 1,070 miles

Wilverton is a fictional station on the North Devon line. The site describes the model of this station (EM-gauge) with an emphasis on scratchbuilding.
Fairford Branch Line Layout
This layout began as a result of reassessing a new portable layout project in 1990-91 and will show the development to its present state as well as some of the problems encountered and their solving.
