Our ambitious ‘0’ scale project is based on Addison Road station on the West London line in Kensington.

Originally built jointly by the LNWR & GWR, this station, now in a greatly reduced form, will be better known to many of you by its current name - Kensington (Olympia).

The model represents the station in the mid-1920’s when rolling stock from all the Big Four railway companies can be run alongside some pre-grouping liveries.

Kensington Addison Road  is one of the Club's most prototypically accurate projects to date. At approximately fifty feet long and with baseboards nearly five feet wide this is also the Club's largest ever project.  The layout is fully operational.

Notable elements are the inclusion of laser cut parts for the buildings, MERG CBUS layout control,  depiction of the third and fourth rails on the electrified lines and the distinctive LNWR signals.

We have engineered etched brass kits to represent the distinctive Oerlikon electric multiple units and the LNWR brake composite carriages which ran in the ‘Sunny South’ through trains.
