THIS LAYOUT IS IN STORAGE, IT HAS NOT BEEN USED SINCE 2014 AND IS UNLIKELY TO SEE FURTHER USE UNTIL MY SON IS OLD ENOUGH TO MAKE HIS OWN MIND UP WHETHER OR NOT HE WANTS TO SEE HIS DAD AGAIN, REGARDLESS OF WHAT HIS MOTHER SAYS.
Princes Road is a layout built for the kids to play with. There is no disguising the fact that it uses ancient Tri-ang track, buildings and trains. No shame there, those are the same brand of toys that I played with when I was young.
A very dear friend of mine passed away in 2013, he had frequently mentioned his old trains and his desire to build a layout but unfortunately never got round to it. His partner has very kindly given me Andy’s collection so that I can build this layout for the kids.
The photo, taken on the 19th of November 2013, shows that layout under construction. The image at the top of the page shows how it turned out.
