Published 25 September 2018, 16:20
Ashington is a model of a typical small Southern Region stabling shed as found in many places along the south coast. Adjacent to it is the station of Ashington.
The model was originally built by Dave Kent of Worthing MRC using Peco code 75 track with code 60 rail on Peco insulators for the third rail in about 2001. It has been to many exhibitions since and also featured in Hornby Magazine in 2007 (HM5) and the 2008 Yearbook.
The layout is now owned by Colin and Phil Standen. Phil added a second storage yard to the layout so that other typical Southern Region trains can now be seen running through on the main line. Phil has been busy re-populating it with SR EMUs and DEMUs from Pheonix, Ayjay Models, DC Kits and others.
Ashington featured in HM5.
