IMG_0024Back again after a quarter of a century’s storage we welcome you to Smalltown – USA. The model offers a glimpse of US Railroading practice in the mid western states at a constant scale of 1/160th (continental N scale).

You’ll see a comprehensive display of freight and passenger movements mostly branded by the Pinetree & Western Railroad Corporation – the owners of the track. Locos and rolling stock of other US ‘roads’ will also be seen as per normal US practice. The period chosen is the 1970s and 1980s.IMG_0014

For the technically minded:-

DC analogue cab control with a radio controlled hand held unit for close up shunting and marshalling. Kaydee automatic coupling and uncoupling is employed. Behind the scenes, trains operate via a large sector plate for route selection with spur lines to hold locos. A comprehensive computerised display screen will provide the onlooker with IMG_0019information. All track work is Peco code 80.
