I thought that would be worth adding a bit of history on the layout and reasons for building the layout in the first place. I spend many years modelling 7mm narrow gauge (0-16.5 narrow gauge), building a couple of exhibition layouts. With the advent of DCC and better quality locomotives, I started collecting a couple of BR blue locos, fitted with DCC decoders. Orchard Road was designed from the outset as an exhibition layout, to be easily transportable , quick and easy to erect and interesting to operate. Over the years, I have made a few changes to the appearance of the layout and will discuss these at another time.
