Croydon North Street

Postby NSE DAZ » Sat Jun 27, 2015 7:19 pm

Hi all.

I am back!! :D

I have owned Croydon North Street since the end of April this year - This masterpiece was purchased from a fellow railway moddeler.

With time not on my side at the moment due to very a heavy workload the idea of purchasing a ready built layout with only having to add my own personal finishing touches seemed the way forward.

North Street is 12' x 18" made up with two boards, the tops are traditional 9mm ply tops with 12mm ply sides and ends. Bracing underneath is softwood.

North Street is a small terminus layout set in the outskirts of London. North Street has a third rail and serviced mainly by EPB's but in rush hour the VEP's are deployed. Three car class 207's and two car 205's are a common feature at North Street bringing passengers in from the West. North Street also has a very small one bay TMD and at times the odd class 50 and 47 can be seen getting worked on to take the workload away from the main TMD. There is a daily mail train normally in the form of a MLV but at times loco hauled. It is not unknown to see some small departmental trains stabling on North Streets bay platform waiting there next duties. This layout will take you back to the NSE hay days in the late 80's early 90's.


The track plan below was created by the creator of North Streer, he has given me permission to use this just in case you never saw it the first time around.

Now I will stop typing and share some pictures of Croydon North Street.
