I used to have a model railway in the late 50s early 60s, not as much detail as this one, but the same 00 scale models. At that time they were Triang-Hornby trains I still have some today, and they had to be Steam. Today a set-up like this one can run into thousands of pounds.
Lovely photo, well done Brian.
Well done to the person who built this.
Many years ago Stan Somers would have had a smaller version of this set up in the Oliver Somers store in Market St,or in the upstairs showrooms for Christmas.
I had a setup as a kid; an intercity and a small steam train..took up half my parent's bedroom hehe.
Went into a model railway shop in Manchester last week, the prices are staggering! £10 a tree, £8 for a portaloo! Wouldn't want be in the hobby these days!
