Archie Brown Layouts

Fairhaven Road - OO Gauge - 1960's

Fairhaven Road. This layout, by Archie Brown, is a OO gauge double track main line with a through station and two passing loops. It represents an ex-Caledonian Railway line in the period from 1955 to 1965 when BR steam locos were giving way to green diesel traction. It has a thirteen road fiddle yard and is operated completely by DCC. The lattice post semaphore signals are all lit and are operated by servos. It generally pulls in quite a crowd at exhibitions and has won prizes for its realism of design, modelling and operation. (Photos by Nigel Burkin.)
