White Meadow Quarry an N Gauge Exhibition Layout
Updated 29th Oct 2023
STORY : Set around 1966 (ERA 5) White Meadow Quarry is an n gauge model railway layout set in a fictitious location somewhere in the South of England. Located a little way outside the village of White Meadow, the railway serves a chalk quarry as well as the village. At the time of the layout, the chalk quarry is coming to the end of its life and is very run-down – almost derelict. A main line station sees fairly regular rail traffic, while the branch line brings materials into and out of the chalk quarry as needed. The quarry workers keep the local pub going – although today it’s doing a roaring trade because there’s a Bus Rally taking place on the common near the station.
INFO: The layout is self supporting and measures 220cm (7ft 2inch) x 122cm (4ft) with a base board height of 100c. It requires two operators and an operating space of 426cm (14ft) x 220cm (7ft). Based in North Essex, it can be transported in the operators’ own vehicle. It is DCC Operated (Manual + Automation) and has fire retardant curtains and a self contained lighting rig.
The layout has just been photographed by Model Rail Magazine for inclusion in one of their 2021 issues Watch the video
The layout has also been featured in the Hornby Magazine (Oct 2023)
NEWS: After keeping our heads down over the last couple of years because of COVID we are now starting to show our layouts again and so White meadow Quarry will now have its first exhibition at the Manchester Christmas MRS 10th - 11th Dec ho ho ho :-)
