So far I have built S Scale layouts based on the pre 1923 Midland Railway, British Railways London Midland Region in the 1950s/60s and a German Deutsche Bundesbahn 1970s era layout. They have all been built in a room about 11 feet by 8 feet and on two levels.

Iíve constructed this website mainly for my own record of what Iíve done and therefore itís hasn't always possible to present it in a completely logical time sequence. The best way to read the website is to look at the Halifax Midland layout page first as that shows its development in chronological order.

The next bit to read is about building the Hebblethwaite layout.

The best way to understand what Iíve done for German modelling is simply to work your way through the separate German section.

 The DB rolling stock and motive power pages are self contained but the German layout section is here.

I also built another layout which I abandoned because I had developed nerve damage.  Iíve left this description on the website as a reminder of what might have been.

All the other sections on the British S Scale pages are completely self contained and can be read in any order.
