Memory Lane

Background

Memory Lane  is primarily a layout for operation by the public. Indeed it is difficult to describe it as a layout since the intention is that it will be built 'on the day' by members of the public, with a little suitable guidance, no doubt.  The layout came about in response to the appalling circumstances surrounding our Stamford 2019 show and the amazing amount of donations of the old 3 rail Hornby Dublo system that was received

Conceived by our Secretary, Brian Norris and being planned using the Anyrail software as ideally, a double 'roundy roundy' with passing loops. the intention being that, depending on popularity, it can grow from its initial 4 feet by 8 feet footprint by the simple expedient of us making up some more boards.
