Ingatestone received its overhead line equipment in the 1950’s which is mostly still in situ today.  Our OO layout has reached a milestone after the completion and installation of our brass replicas, scratch built by Tony Rees.


Board One was moved out of  Keen House to Tony’s home so he could continue the work during the current lockdown.  Tony tells me the next job will be to clean and then chemically blacken the brass  prior to painting and detailing.  Then the next job will be fitting of the level crossing.


(The loco is a HO interloper from Germany for testing).
