Hectors End

by Barry Cossins

So my layout is new, started this September 2016 and is 00 scale will be set loosely around 1960 with all BR steam locomotives and Diesel shunters Its called Hectors End by way and measures 12ft x 5ft and use Peco code 75 track and points, all the electronics are from MERG kits which I have built and is about half way done. The basic layout functions well, points etc. but the ultimate plan is to have it capable of being fully automated via JRMI so the next phase is to add train on track detection and start adding in some linked signals which will add be LED type. The layout is a copy of one we saw in the National Railway Museum and liked so its a very near copy with some additional point work, loops and sidings.
