Bridgebury Gate is fictional town set somewhere in
the south of England, not too far from the West Country, some time between
1966 and 2000.
It's an N Gauge layout, 1:148 scale, and consists
of a twin track main line, with a branch and limited freight facilities.
Trains go up the branch to 'Mikel End', a somewhat ancient branch
line that only survived total closure by being reduced to single
track. The remnants of the former double track are still visible.
Around the back of the layout we have a limited
six-lane fiddle yard, with each line able to hold two six or seven coach
trains or one really long one. The layout's basically a good place to enjoy
running trains and to watch them go by.
We hope you enjoy seeing it on its limited exhibition
circuit. Any positive comment or suggestions are always welcome. Please
get in touch via the link at the foot of the page.
