Franwood

TMD

Guest Layout;

'00' gauge - Mid 1970's - BR

Franwood TMD is a fictional traction depot based in the Midlands area that includes basic maintenance, Fuelling and stabling facilities.

The layout portrays operation of a small BR diesel depot from the BR Green/BR Blue era of the mid 1970's through the early 1980's. 

The layout is fictional and is based in the West Midlands as an overflow for Bescot and Saltley depots that I remember visiting in my younger years.

 Locomotives on show can range from small class 08 shunting locos through to class 56s and literally most things in between as was the case back in those days.                 

The layout is DCC in operation using NCE Power Cab with some locomotives having sound systems fitted which adds to the atmosphere of the place.......

Originally the layout was intended for home use only and after encouragement from   family friends we decided to take it out on the road. The layout is named after my late      father who sadly passed away shortly after its completion and never got to see it out on        the exhibition circuit.......hopefully he would approve........
