Briford Antworten

My N Gauge layout is set in the transitional period of British Railways, and is set in the southwest of England in some fictitious place where Western & Southern Regions share the main lines.

Thank you Gentlemen for you kind words. Briford was started nine years ago and was basically finished seven years later although work is still ongoing as far as scenery detailing is concerned. The layout is 9’x10’and to aid access and help give an eye level view the baseboard was built 3’ 6” off the floor. There are hidden sidings which store the 19 complete trains for main and suburban lines. The layout is run on DC with Gaugemaster controllers, as most of the 41 locos are old it would not be worth converting them to DCC, I can run four trains + a shuttle into the bay platform at one time.

Many British model railway layouts remember me of famous British painters like John Constable and their paintings, because of all the lovely detailed scenes one can discover on the layouts.
Here it is the same.
Well done!

Best wishes

I am also a fan from Constable. His pictures incorporates the spirit of the "good old times".

For more deeper background look:

Thank you Jurg, Markus, Torsten, Stefan, and jorg . Here are three more of Briford , The first one of the engine sheds is an early one, and the green vegetation on right is no longer there. ( I removed it to make a bigger operating area ) The last two show the end of the layout where the storage sidings are hidden, covers down and up.

Regards, Brian.

Hello Brian - and all the other readers,

I am deeply impressed. Your room must be huge, some meters in every direction. When I see the long trains running there, I can't come to another conclusion.
I really love all those small details, even sales prices on the car screens ! And all the other tiny things, you created...

Very well done, Brian !!!

Kind regards to all of you

Hi Klaus and all. Thanks for your comments. The layout is housed in a garage and is around 3m square. I’ve tried to draw a track plan of Briford but I am know good with computer graphics and just as bad trying to draw it freehand, so I stitched some photos together to give you some idea of the track plan. Also one of the other end and a couple of small scenes. Regards Brian.
