Our Layouts

London Road Box

00 scale 4mm to the foot

A simple “double track circuit with sidings in the middle” with basic village scenery and flush mounted controllers at the front corners for operation by visiting children and positioned at approximately 2ft 6” from the floor for this reason.

While not based in any way on the famous island of Sodor, Thomas, Percy and Duck share hauling duties on the layout with several visiting locomotives. Much of the rolling stock, including Annie and Clarabel, will be recognisable from the Rev Audrey’s books and we do try to follow correct railway running procedures as he did.

Normally powered from a single 13A mains socket, the layout can be operated from a 12V battery for charity and village fetes etc.

The name of the layout? – Rev W Audrey lived on London Road in the village of Box, Wiltshire.
