Our 1965ish 3rd rail BR(S) Nictun Borrud is a layout which was based on the US Army building a branch line during WWII. Had it been built it would have come from the Meon Valley Line to Southwick House (SHAEF HQ in WWII) just behind Portsdown Hill, near Portsmouth.
As co-builder of NB, I liked it so much I thought I would replicate it and bring it into the 21st century based on it surviving the Dr Beeching cuts and prospering today (and to run my modern stock ).
The goods yard has gone, replaced by car sales and petrol station and the old WWII military sidings developed to house a Rail maintenance facility. The Sub Power Station has also been upgraded.
