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 and yet still be prototypically correct.

Kensington Addison Road has been thoroughly researched and the layout 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.

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

The layout is fully operational allowing monthly running sessions continues on the non-railway structures and scenic detail.
