A Modern image OO Gauge layout, era is 1970 until 1990 pre de-nationalisation. The layout is loosely based on a scene of a North West and Scottish terminus with freight yard.  Buildings such as the engine shed, signal box, station booking hall and freight depot have lighting fitted to them and others.

There are various cameo scenes on the layout such as the welder and workshop in the engines shed and the car repairs being performed at the end of the front road.  The freight depot has some hidden surprises and some not so obvious ones.  Baseboard construction is in the form of  MDF framework of various sizes and a 9mm MDF top.  All this is sealed with a water proof seal to prevent the MDF from expanding when laying ballast.  Front side and back boards are 6mm ply with added stiffening. 

Shunting and terminus operation is made realistic by the use of Kadee couplers on the rolling stock and carefully hidden magnets.
