PART III of Dave’s giant ‘O’ gauge model railway.
In this episode, take a look at some of the weird and wonderful elements Dave has scattered around his layout. Also, Mike gets his hands on some tiny DCC sound decoders and Dave explains the benefits of fitting locomotives with smoke generators.
Part IV will be out very soon – so keep checking the Model Rail YouTube channel or Facebook page:
Mike Harris visits a giant model railway layout built by professional model maker and Model Rail magazine launch Editor, Dave Lowery. Dave’s layout is 30ft by 30ft and resides within a purpose-built annex in his garden. But there’s so much more to Dave’s ‘O’ gauge layout than model trains. Each locomotive is DCC sound fitted, most of the steam locomotives eject live steam, and the whole layout is split into five different scenes. Not to mention, Dave’s garden backs onto the real East Coast Main Line! In this episode, Mike takes a first look at Dave’s model railway, meets the man himself and learns about DCC (Digital Command Control). In Part II, Dave shows off his authentic Class 56 control desk, talks about life as a professional model maker and introduces Mike to the real trains in his garden – the East Coast Main Line. So, there’s much, much more to come! If you like this Model Rail production, check out Model Rail magazine via the following websites:
