Perth and District MRC’s showcase 00 gauge layout is based on a fictitious location somewhere in Mainland Britain and is set firmly in the post steam era, specifically from the 1980s to the present day. The track plan is loosely based on Stirling (using a lot of modeller’s licence!) with additional sidings and features. Peco Code 100 track and point motors are used throughout the layout.
A two-car class 170 DMU in the attractive Scotrail livery crosses the impressive girder bridge. The structure is receiving the attention of a team of painters, whose cradle hangs over the side of the structure.
Class 47 145 in BR standard rail blue with sector logo passes the extensive freight yards and makes it way towards Almond Bridge Station.
Large modern model railways—and Almond Bridge is a large layout—would not be complete with a refuelling point, captured here in this cameo view of DRS locos being topped up.
