Victoria viaduct - latest picture
Victoria has a new home, courtesy of ABS Cases Company in London.
This is fellow 2mm modeller Alan (Midsomer Norton) Smith's business. See MRJ No 184 for Alan's layout article.
Alan has all manner of sophisticated machinery in his workshop to produce the goods, and excellent products they are too.
He has even produced a layout name board for us. See the photo.
Les of the Fence Houses team, was down south visiting his mother in Norfolk, and went on to Alan's place to collect not only Victoria's case, but some baseboard parts for his own planned layout of Hornsey Shed.
The case should keep Victoria nice and snug for her trip to the Oxford Expo next July. The other thirteen baseboards of the layout will not be getting the same VIP treatment as Victoria, but we hope to get them into a reasonable shape for viewing by the time of the show, Watch this space!
