Last updated May 2017 We had a great time at Scalefour North - and very happy to have won the Walton-Evans Trophy for best layout! There’s not a lot happening on Plumpton Green at present as we focus on getting Pulborough ready for the Bluebell MRS at the end of June. Charlie Trace’s work on the scenery is coming to a conclusion., and Chris and I are working on the electrics. Quite a few things need some work having not seen the light of day for nearly eight years. Martin Nield has recently published a book entitled ‘Authentic Model Railway Operation. It’s well worth reading (£13.95, 60pp, from Wild Swan Publications) and I’m happy to say that it contains a few photos of Plumpton Green The Brighton Circle e-group has recently started producing a twice-yearly digital ‘Modellers’ Digest’ which contains articles of particular interest to modellers of the LBSC of all scales and eras, and potentially other pre-group modellers. The latest edition of the Digest can be found here.
This website contains details of my current layout ‘Plumpton Green’ together with the Mid-Sussex Group’s layouts, plus photos and descriptions of various techniques I have used over the years. The layouts and models here are all built to Protofour standards (4mm:ft). Pulborough and Plumpton Green are both available for exhibition. All of the photos and drawings should open a larger version in a new window if you click on them. I hope you enjoy the site, and find it useful. If you wish to use any of the site content, please ask. If you would like to contact me, please email. Barry Luck
