Railway Sign

Southern/BR Southern Region - 1930s-1970s.

The theme of this layout is the Southern Railway and/or BR Southern Region with a main line station and stock from other regions running through at times. It has been adapted to become a non-specific location and era layout so that EMRS members can ran whatever stock they have brought along.

The layout was formerly owned by the N Gauge Society (North West Kent Area Group) and previously operated under the name of 'St. Mary's' and in a different era. When acquired by the Erith Model Railway Society, it was renamed 'Norvic Junction' (after Norvic House, a now-demolished tower block of flats in Larner Road, Erith, the previous home of the Erith Model Railway Society from 1992 until late autumn 2012). When construction of Scatchwood began, it was sold to one of the members who has renovated, rebuilt, repaired and renamed the layout.

It is intended to be a family layout, so during a show you will see steam, diesel, electric, and even Thomas & Friends running, depending on which operators are at the exhibition. The track work is Peco Code 80 and most of the buildings are scratch built using card.

If you would like Much Whinging to attend an event or display in your area, please do not hesitate to contact our Layouts Coordinator via the Contact Us page.
