'Wisteria Collop' 009 Exhibition Layout
by Dave Simpson with Rachael Field


Wisteria Collop is a simple 009 layout designed and built by me, Dave Simpson, with help and encouragement from Rachael Field. Just three peco points, a left, a right and a Y. The buildings are kit bashed from Ratio and Wills kits mainly. The other buidlings are Skaledale & Scenecraft weathered and enhanced..

It is a simple roundy-roundy trainset which includes a station with passing loop and small goods siding and a few cottages. The road runs under the railway at one end and over the railway at the other.

Wisteria Collop is part of the fictitious south west English county of Somershire, my home OO / 009 layout.

The name "Wisteria Collop" is an anagram of three English model railway manufacturers.
