The home of WCML modelling
Originally conceived in Feb 2009 as part
of the YMR forum modular layout Potters
Lane has now been incorporated into the AC lines exhibition layout.
This 6’ x 2’ module is based on the book Britain's New Railway by O S Nock and depicts a local station in the potteries that was rebuilt during the 1960’s electrification scheme. Behind the station is a small loco shed based on Crewe that not only boasts
a detailed interior but also a working loco lift. Viewers can get a closer look into the shed via the live video picture displayed on one of the monitors above the layout. A second camera looks down from above so that wheel chair users can get a better view of the layout.
As well as the operating loco lift viewers can also control a scale model of a CCTV
camera that is mounted on the end of the island platform.
