|Great Moor Street in OO scale in all its old world splendour.|
|An overview of the station canopies. An Ex Midland Flatiron 0-6-2T waits in|
Platform 3 with some Ex LNWR stock.
|A view under the canopies of Great Moor Street. I think this photo captures the|
right atmosphere which was what I was striving for here, that maze of frames
and elegant styling of the steam days.
|The layout plan which shows the three 1065mm modules that fold over|
each other - all permanently fixed together with hinges.
|The view of the coal staithes and signal box. All the points are switched|
using a simple push-rod system attached to a slide switch which changes the
polarity of the attached point. The mini control panel can just be seen
below the front ledge.
|A view of the lift off bridge that covers the hinges fixed on either side on top |
of the abutments. The bus on the bridge is of a local bus line with
"Plodder Lane" written on the destination boards - appropriate for the area.
|The large warehouse hides the four storage roads. The wagon turntable is located on the piece of baseboard|
that sticks further out. The furniture factory siding comes right to the end of the layout.
|The layout folded up and placed in the back seat of my car|
ready for transport to a convention. Seat belts are used to restrain
in case of an accident.
|This shot shows the layout erected before adding the curtains and|
rolling-stock. The control panel can be seen in the centre.
