Saltdean is an 0 gauge layout representing an LBSCR termnius in the Summer of 1888. Saltdean is a real place but it did not develop until the 1920's, however I have imagined it as a Victorian creation with a branch line being built to serve the new resort in 1882 from Brighton. I have also stretched reality by assuming that the line was used by Brighton Works for running in newly built and overhauled engines which means that I can run anything the LBSCR had at the time.The layout uses DCC control and all the engines have sound. Saltdean is 21' long and 3' wide, and requires a floor space of 24' x 7' ...we need to be able to walk around the station end as we operate from the front.
The layout has two operators and requires a hire van, and we ask to be accommodated if the show is more than an hour from Melton Mowbray.
