Railway layouts: Norwich Station




My visit to a very large layout somewhere in Norfolk proved to be inspiring and educational on many levels. Colin has developed a facsimile of Norwich station as it used to be in the 50s. There is a wide range of rolling stock and engine power as the following photos illustrate. A unique aspect of this railway is the control of points and semaphore signals using compressed air. As part of his railway is in the  garden with a large return loop, this type of control is not affected by weather conditions.
