  • Trevor,

    I'm not a modeller but have visited The Woodford Model Railway Society's layout of Woodford on one of the open days held at the Social Club. Here's a link to an album of photos I took.

    Should I hear of any other such open days I'll put a meassgae on this website.

  • Hello Trevor,

    I'm a modeller too.  I think you're right, it's a rarely modeled line but I love these cross country routes.  The S&D gets all the glory!  The M&GN is another rarely modeled east-west line.  I was very seriously going to model Byfield, it's the best small station on the line for variety and the addedd attraction of the quarry and Woodford Link.  I just couldn't find room for the extra 2 feet in length that would do the station justice.  I'm almost complete now on an 00 model of Blakesley in LMS days.  If you look under "groups" on the banner header, that's where all the modelling stuff is stored on the site.  I have plans of the station building, signal box and goods shed at Ettington that are identical to Byfield if they'd help you out.

  • I am essentially a modeller who became interested in the SMJ,via my researches of Woodford Halse as it is my (very) long term plan to model the station area in the future. In the meantime,I've just started a project based on Byfield ironstone sidings as I simply do not have space to model the station. Given the sheer variety of motive power that worked on the line in the 1950s/60s, I am amazed the SMJ is not mega popular with modellers.
