The 33rd model railway exhibition by the Mid Essex Model Railway Club on the 18th Sept 2010 at Shenfield High School.
Exhibiter 17 is “Purbeck” by John Thorne in 009 gauge.
“Set in the 1950’s & assumes that the industrial lines of the Isle of Purbeck were extended to not only carry the ball clay but to include passenger & local freight service.
These trains run into a station located at Corfe.
From the station a line extends through the Dorset countryside covered in the local gorse into the works of the Purbeck Clay Company.
The layout is not intended to be a model of the actual industrial lines but illustrates the ball clay industry with weathering beds, drag liner & a clay processing works.
To give a prototypical feel various original buildings have been modelled along with scratchbuilt models of the original Lewin & Manning Wardle locos.”
Exhibiter 20 is Harford Street by Lloyd, Jim, Charlie, Ian, Colin & Charlie in 00 gauge.
“A brand new layout brought to you from the builders of Sidney Street, giving you a flavour of the London railway scene.
Whilst still many details still to add, the general depiction can be gained as to how the finished layout will appear.”
