About the blog

This rambling blog is about building a simple layout in HO, the available space is rather small but the prototype was not built on the grand scale, most rural stations were merely a curved loop and a siding, which is easy to replicate.

Lost in France

 Lost in France - blog

After almost forty years of modelling the railways of Germany, a change was needed - the solution is a layout inspired by the secondary railways of Normany.  One such  tiny station is Acquigny in Haute Normandie better remembered as the location for the film 'The Train'.

Today, the line that passes through the town was closed in the 60s but the tracks were still in place in 2018.

 But in 1964, it became famous
