Chiltern Parkway depicts an intersection between an established mainline and a
newly built continental line. As the name suggests it is set in the Chilterns
and uses a number of local features to give a realistic setting. The Aylesbury
canal runs along the rear of the rail lines. Buildings have been "borrowed" from
Bulbourne BWB workshops and relocated to Marsworth. The Chilterns escarpment forms
the scenery to the right of the layout with its characteristic woodland hillside. The
modern station to the left hand end forms a transport interchange between the trains
and the local bus services.
Set in the late 90's there is a variety of passenger and freight stock, both diesel
and electric. Both class 66 and 92 are present as well as the older classes of
loco. The continental mainline has the Eurostar, TGV, ICE2 and high speed UK trains.
EWS livery locos are present but do not dominate as many BR liveries are still to
Stock is a mixture of Graham Farish, CJM, N-thusiast resprays, N gauge society,
Roco, Kato, Minitrix and Fleishmann.
