N Gauge Model Railway Layout “Bridgford” by Alastair Knox

Railway modeller Alastair Knox presented his beautiful model railway layout, which is called “Bridgford”, at Warley MRE. Bridgford is a “watch the model trains go by” type of layout set in the late 1930’s on the London, Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS), a British railway company. The object is to run trains which are not out of proportion to the scenery, and which are as near as possible to the prototype in make-up and length.

The “Bridgford” model train layout is not new, but already several years old. It was presented in the magazine “British Railway Modelling” (January, 1998) and “Railway Modeller” (June, 2014). Controllers are from AMR Electronics Company. Turnouts are fitted with PECO motors. Locomotives are kits or heavily modified. The coaches are marshalled as nearly as possible in the correct formations for the late 1930’s.

Goods stock is the usual mixture of scratchbuilt, kits, modified proprietary and straight out of the box. Some of the goods stock is fitted with DG couplings for shunting. Most of the buildings on the layout are from the SD mouldings range, the rest are either products of “Ratio Plastic Model Kits” (PECO) or scratchbuilt. Signals are Ratio with Model Signal Engineering (MSE) arms. A feature of this model railroad layout is the beautiful railway viaduct. The viaduct etchings are by courtesy of Mike Raithby of the Manchester Model Railway Society, construction being in brass.
