Countdown to D-Day

This is a new layout for 2014 and is to be be planned and built by novice modellers, particularly our junior members.

Set in the period leading up to the Allied invasion of Normandy, the layout will feature a secret location somewhere in the southern half of England. Previously a sleepy village with a small station, wartime sidings will service a military depot supplying the forces preparing for the impending invasion of Europe.

Design and construction will be led by our junior members, with advice and guidance from more experienced heads when needed. Those of use who could not claim to be junior, but perhaps have the same levels of experience, will be contributing as well. While this project will hopefully be a learning experience for all involved, the intention is to produce an exhibition quality layout which we can share with others.

Draft plans and progress will be posted here soon!
