About this title


Originally built in 1959 and exhibited in 1960 and 1962 in Malvern by the late Laurie Tandy, this “O”gauge layout was renovated in 2015 and was exhibited for the first time in 53 years by his children at the HRCA Exhibition in Burnham on Sea in October 2015.

Up to 5 simultaneous train movements can be happening at any one time, and the layout is able to replicate all of the train movements that one might find on a large through station on the full-sized railway in the 1930s.

Stock comprises between 35 and 40 locomotives (one or two may be being overhauled), with about two thirds being electric powered and one third clockwork. There are three rakes of five Southern Railway coaches, a rake of five Southern suburban coaches, a rake of eight Pullman coaches, a rake of seven Midland maroon coaches, a rake of five teak coaches and a rake of five Great Western coaches. Goods stock consists of about 80 wagons, both private owner and from the four railway companies.

This impressive layout, still owned and operated by the Tandy family, continues to thrill wherever it goes on display. In this short programme we catch up with those dedicated to its operation and who tirelessly keep this important piece of model railway nostalgia active and for the pleasure of many.
