2012 BRM awards 2012 BRM awards - Rowlands Castle 1

Rowlands Castle

This oo gauge layout - brought to life by the expert skills of Peter Goss - is based on a real village near Havant in Hampshire, set in the period immediately prior to the D-Day landings, with a large number of trooop movements taking place, including troop trains from different areas of the country. All of the buildings on the layout are scratch-built to a very high standard. This layout was featured in the March 2011 issue of BRM.

Loosley based on the Whittington Hospital Railway in Nottinghamshire, this World, War Two era O gauge layout from the East Riding Finescale Group effectively describes a private railway run on a shoestring budget.

Lambley Viaduct

This N gauge layout is actually an extension to the already excellent ‘Alston’ layout by David Smith. Featured in the July 2011 issue of BRM, the layout effectively recreates a classic 1950’s era scene in the South Type valley. The viaduct, which is now a Grade II protected structure, was completed in 1952.
