Autumn in Hollow Grove

Autumn in Hollow Grove was my first attempt at a OO scale layout. Previously, I had only built in N Scale. This layout was simply two modules, both 1210 mm x 410 mm, placed end to end. Although I intended for the layout to be an English 1940s prototype, it ended up rather a hotchpotch.

Specifications: Track is Peco Flexitrack and set track Code 100. Point motors are Peco. Scenery is Woodland Scenics. Fencing, railway workers, platform, platelayers hut and coal hut are all Dapol. Black Five and rolling stock are predominately Hornby. Woody is an Oxford Diecast.

Enough said, below are some photographs.

  1. Nice work Duff. Love the stand of trees, the bushes and the grass. Particularly like the very natural transition from grassed area to right of way, (complete with picket fence)
    I reckon the workers lower pants could use some weathering/grime also.
    Wish I lived in Hollow Grove…
