NICTUN BORRUD: where it began.
I built this 'OO' Finescale layout with another guy at the club. He would collect unfinnished DC, Kirk and MTK Southern 3rd rail kits from a well known web site and finish them and wanted a layout to run them on.
In the club store room he found an old 6 foot board with hand made points and track, with a few more boards this is what became Nictun Borrud.......the name......everthing on it was either nicked or borrud from other club layouts, cupboards or projects.
I enjoyed building NB and with other club members and running it at exhibitons. When I thought of building an 'OO' Finescale layout for myself, I liked the NB layout and thought it would be novel to build the same layout but a modern version (and it was to run my modern stock on)....and so N2K was born.
Both have become exhibition layouts representing the Fareham & District MRC located in Portchester near Fareham, Hampshire.
It is also fun to have both at a show and see when people realise they are the same layout but some 50 years apart !
Since the oiginal photos were taken we have replaced the backscene with a photographic one and replaced the platform surface.
Visitors have been here.
