BR/NSE - 1980s-1990s.
East Foxley is a small town somewhere in the south of England in the late 1980s or early 1990s. At the edge of the edge of the town there is a small station (mainly for commuter use) and a separate goods yard and uniquely a single road engine shed which is sub-let to a local preserved steam railway group.
The actual layout measures 8ft x 4ft and has been 'designed' to show what can be achieved in a relatively small space using Peco Code 100 flexi track. The electrics are fairly simple but have been complicated by the inclusion of the 2 way passing loop (centre track through the station). The layout is a member of the 'Foxley' family of layouts.
The buildings are mainly Hornby Skaledale with the addition of Wills, Ratio and Knightwing kits. Most of the vehicles are Corgi, Oxford Die-cast and Base Toys. Accessories are from a variety of ranges.
Rolling stock is a mixture of ready to run Hornby, Lima, Heljan, Bachmann and ViTrains although some has been weathered and enhanced.
Generally stock from the NSE period will be run, but as this layout was designed more for entertainment, there will be the occasional visitor (depending on what has actually been brought to the exhibition or possibly purchased here).
East Foxley was started in the spring of 2008 and took just over 12 months to complete (although layouts are never really finished, so do not be surprised if you see additional scenic items appearing during an exhibition).
