00 gauge model reconstructed by Mark Towers

The original layout was purchased by John Baker who moved to live in Wales and is now a honorary member of the club.
John decided to donate the layout to Mark who has since rebuilt and renamed it as Bamar.
Bamar is 17 ft long and 2ft wide at the station end
.Bamar has now been sold and a replacement "Bucks Lane" is under construction

The pictures below were taken while the model was on show at Martin Mere Modelling Weekend 26th and 27th of January 2013

Looking down the layout from the coal siding at the station end.
This is a view of the station platforms with a DMU having just arrived. The station canopy unfortunately was damaged in transporting the model to the exhibition and needs to be rebuilt.

Looking back from where the main lines go off into the sector plate storage area via a scenic break in the form of a bridge
Another view of the station area with the goods shed visible on the left.
A gronk is seen here doing some shunting.
The point motor visible on the left is normally covered by a building. Yet another casualty of transporting the model to the show.
