    John Elliott

    Issue 216 (2012)

    4mm/00

    We may call it operation but running a layout in a 'railway-like manner' is what interests John Elliott. Through his words he has presented a narrative behind his thinking, and introduces us to this topic in an inspired and enthused way. However, that is not all there is to Bradfield Gloucester Square, as it captures the essence of an everyday scene that most of us remember. The scene is set in 1962.

  • Life after Bradfield - Introducing Leeds City Wellington

    John Elliott

    Issue 272 (2019)

    p.177

    4mm/EM

    John Elliott's Bradfield Gloucester Square made quite an impact when it appeared in the pages of MRJ issues 216 to 218. Here was a layout based on authentic operation and it developed quite a following both on-line and through its all too brief exhibition appearances. However, the follow-on is Leeds City Wellington which now forms a permanent layout being developed at John's home.

    With the experience of Bradfield, this is, as one might expect, very much a layout inspired by prototype practice and John and his team have gone to great lengths to research the station and its associated train workings. We are delighted he has agreed to give us some background, interview-style, to how the layout came about and how the project is developing.

    We much admire the realism and operation of Bradfield Gloucester Square, so we asked John Elliott what he did to his out-of-the-box diesels to make them perform better, and to improve their appearance.
