Middlewood was a bit of experiment. A friend at the time suggested an advanced electrical fiddle yard. after much work, it did work, but was very marginal at Exhibitions. It was withdrawn from the Exhibition circuit after only two years and sold. All locomotives on Middlewood photographs are detailed LIMA – years ago if you wanted a decent loco you had to detail and repaint it yourself. Maybe we are spoilt with the new breed of models!
This layout is now owned by Les Williams, a good friend and quite an influence on my modelling. Thanks Les.
