       An 00 gauge layout by

       Robert Denton


The layout is DCC controlled and formerly used as a test track to test locos and to display various lighting designs.  The majority of locos are sound fitted. 

The scene depicts an engine shed and refuelling depot in the steam-to-diesel transition period.  The venue could be almost anywhere.

Robert was, until recently, involved in the design and manufacture of electronic model railway accessories, and some are to be seen working on the layout, which look particularly effective in low light.
