Sheep Lane Exhibition Layout

4mm:ft, OO, DC Operation

Sheep Lane

Sheep Lane depot is Mike's latest excursion into cameo modelling.

This is a compete reversion to basic principles of 4mm practice. The track is code 100, the control is a simple analogue 'train set' controller. There is no sound or special effects.

Make no mistake however, but this layout really is very effective. The simple understated execution of the modelling provides a highly believable miniature landscape for a small rural goods depot. It has to be remembered that not all locations were blessed with a complex arrangement of trackside features - often a pitfall for freelance modellers.
