Doug Richards – Folkestone Junction

 

Doug Richards’ 4mm scale ‘OO’ gauge layout, Folkestone Junction:

 

It is a model of Folkestone Jcn MPD circa 1959 when both the old SER R1′s and ex WR Pannier tanks were based there for working the steeply graded harbour branch. As I lived there many hours were spent watching activities and hence the reason for making a model which is quite accurate to the real thing.
