Open Day Martin's Sidings
2013 Open Day at Acton Village Hall 'Martin's Sidings' at the 2013 Open Day

'Acton Lane'
This layout has been built by the children over a number of years. It appears today for the last time with the new seaside extension.

This is a small terminus to fiddle yard layout and as the name implies it is not based on any region of the country.

This is based on Brightlingsea, a Great Eastern terminus, but modellers licence has been used and the name has been slightly changed. This is Mak's first forage into O gauge.

'Martin's Sidings'
The time is now. On the outskirts of North London in Enfield, not far from the East Coast Main Line, a few overgrown sidings remain in use to stable overnight engineers trains and prepare others. Trainee drivers also use the area to hone their skills. There is a working aggregate loading facility.

Details abound throughout. On the nearby streets there is a celebration of a Royal Wedding. The theme is shunting. Peco Finescale 00 gauge track is used on this layout. It is a modern image circular layout, measuring 8ft x 5ft.

'Slate On Us'
The railway was built to move slate down to the sea and a station has been included to bring workers in as well.

'New Romney'
This is a model of New Romney station on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway in Kent. A main line in minature.
