Modelling the East Coast Main Line in the British Railways Era follows the construction of an East Coast Main Line layout in OO gauge, based on the Little Bytham prototype. Little Bytham, nestled in rural Lincolnshire, is the station nearest to where the fastest steam exploits in the country were achieved. Nearby, the Flying Scotsman became the first steam locomotive to reach 100 miles per hour, Papyrus broke the world speed record for a non-streamlined locomotive, and Mallard set the current world speed record for a steam locomotive.

This practical guide takes the reader through all aspects of constructing the layout including:


  • Research, planning and preparation
  • Baseboard construction, track laying and ballasting
  • Wiring and making signals
  • Modelling scenery, buildings, locomotives, carriages and wagons
  • How to plan an operation sequence
  • Constructional procedures, methods and techniques applicable to all scales, gauges, and time periods
