Scale : 7mm/O Gauge

Dave D’Arcy

Littleton is a freelance layout based on BR (Southern Electric) practice, set on the south coast of England near Littlehampton. The track plan is based on the “Minories” plan devised by Cyril Freezer some fifty years ago. The main station boards were originally built by Brian Thomas in London, and the layout has been extended with carriage sidings fronting the fiddle yard The track is Peco, with H & M point motors; pointwork in the station area is built with Peco point parts. Semaphore signals are operated by model aircraft servos and colour light signals are from the Roger Murray range. The layout is worked by steam, diesel and electric trains, all of which would have been seen on the Southern Region between 1958 and 1966. The layout is 34 ft long and 20 in wide, ad operated from behind by a team of four people. The fiddle yards to the right as the viewer looks at the layout, although the entire frontage is scenic. The layout is in six parts and is transported in two cars.
