Clone Line

Layout Description:

The layout represents a fictitious section of the former Great Central Railway's London Extension route to Marylebone, in modern times. Sited on the outskirts of London and thus outside of the North London Line, the station is a passing point for passenger and freight services, as these travel in and out of London. On the upside or south of the station is the junction between the route to Marylebone and the North London Line, whilst to the north is Clone Airport, with its below ground terminus station on a branch from Clone main line station. Clone main line station is classic Great Central, with its disused goods yard now taken over by the adjacent rail connected metal fabrication factory, with its rail enthusiast owner. Thus, stabled here, are either the wagons serving his factory, which boasts its own shunting locomotive, or visiting preserved steam and diesel locomotives as these prepare for rail tours. This area also provides a home for some preservation projects. On the main line you will see a range of modern passenger and freight services, with a slight splashing from the corporate blue era, plus preserved steam on rail tours. Stock is currently ready-to-run, with detailing and weathering undertaken as time permits. Buildings are a mixture of the excellent ready-made models now available, kit built, modified kits or scratch built. The layout is operated via DCC, with points and signals via conventional methods.
