Tetfield Under Bolt
Tetfield is a fictitious Western Region branch line terminus located
somewhere in the west of England.
We have used Peco fine scale track and points, all of which have been ballasted and weathered.
The locomotives are mainly Graham Farish and Dapol which some have been repainted and renumbered. The coaches were obtained from the same manufacturers. Goods wagons are mainly Peco or N Gauge society kits on Peco chassis. Most of the rolling stock are fitted with Peco Elsie couplings and electromagnets are used to auto uncouple the wagons , this allows shunting.
The buildings are made by Ratio, Ten Commandments ,Bachmann, Metcalfe and Lyddle End, some have been modified and repainted. By using ready made buildings saved a lot of time in making the layout.
The layout took less than a year to build. It will be featured in the Railway Modeller late in 2011.
The model has been designed to be folded up and carried in a small hatchback car to exhibitions.
The layout uses my own design of cassettes , an article on constructing them appeared in April 2011 Railway Modeller.
