Wishing to recreate a scene from his trainspotting days, and having built an enviable collection of East Coast Main Line trains, Tony Wright looked for a prototype station to model.

With careful research and attention to detail, he has created a wonderful and inspiring layout, and MRJ is particularly proud to present the result in Tony's sincere and thought-provoking words. So sit back, turn the pages and relive those distant days of the fifties.
