Foundry Lane was my first finescale layout it was built to EM gauge standards and depicted a West Midland freight only line in the 1970s. I exhibited at about a dozen shows over about a 5 year period, before retiring it from the circuit.
This was followed by Fryers Lane which was built primarily as a test track to allow me to gain experience of working to the finer tolerances of P4 modelling. To date it has been exhibited at a few shows (making its début at Scaleforum 2015 as a work in progress) and is largely complete, except for some details and a plan to replace one of the buildings.
A desire to build some loco kits led me to start looking at 1930s LMS (ex-LNWR) subjects for inspiration. As a result, there are a couple of locos and several wagons on my workbench reflecting these interests; a layout might follow at some point.
A long-term goal is to model Wolverhampton Low Level as it was in 1971, just before withdrawal of the passenger service, although I’ve not really made much progress on that for a few years now.
As the mood takes me, this blog might also feature the occasional post about my other interests including mountain bikes, dogs and classic car restoration.
