White Meadow Quarry Information
The Layout's 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.

The Design And Build Team
Anna & Ray have been into model railways for about 5 years now and this is their third n gauge exhibition layout. Residing in a small house (now mostly filled with model railway layouts) in a small village in North Essex, they are ideally placed to exhibit all over the UK. When not building and exhibiting model railways they can sometimes be heard playing music around the folk club circuit.
