Wickhambreux Road by David Marshall

The inspiration for this layout comes from reading about the East Kent Railway and the proposed extension from Wingham to Canterbury to service a coal mine at Wickhambreux which never materialised.

The layout depicts Wickhambreux Road station, on the Canterbury Light Railway, just prior to the start of the Second World War. The station, which is over one mile from the village, lies between Canterbury and Wingham Town and sits west of the junction to Wickhambreux Colliery. The CLR transports coal and local farm produce to Canterbury and operates a local passenger service. Wickhambreux Road is the head office for the railway, there is an engine shed, carriage shed and goods facilities together with a private siding to service a wholesale fruit and vegetable merchant.

This layout is based in Salisbury and is available for exhibitions.
