Torrecastle Viaduct – David Evans
Set in the 1970s to 80s, when BR blue livery ruled supreme, Torrecastle Viaduct is a freelance layout constructed in 2mm/ft scale and built with N gauge code 55 track. The layout is continuous, featuring a double track main line which emerges from a tunnel and immediately crosses a viaduct over a gorge cut by a river through the rock. The landscape then levels out and runs through farmland before entering an urban area and disappearing beneath a town which still retains part of its original Roman walls. Provincial trains appear through a separate tunnel mouth and run into the station before commencing their return journey. Ten storage sidings are out of sight of the viewing area and can hold a maximum of twenty six trains, thus ensuring a continuous and varied supply of trains.
The model is not time-
1990s to 2006 liveried stock can be operated, if requested.
The aims of the layout are to keep trains moving on the main lines and to provide a degree of interest in the scenic sections by displaying various cameo scenes.
