    Featured extensively in the February 2016 edition of the Hornby Railway Collectors' Association journal, and in "Talking Points" in the November 2018 edition of "Railway Modeller", this almost unique Vintage O gauge layout is mainly Hornby with a strong Southern Railway bias, but all of the "Big Four" companies are represented. Layout consists of four platform through station with avoiding loop, small goods yard, two further goods sidings, and motive power depot with turntable. Most points are power operated with one or two hand points which we get spectators to operate for us. There is also a two road fiddle yard to facilitate stock changes. Up to 5 simultaneous train movements can be happening at any one time, and the layout is able to replicate all of the train movements that one might find on a large through station on the full-sized railway in the 1930s.
    Originally built in 1959 and exhibited in 1960 and 1962 in our childhood home town of Malvern by the late Laurie Tandy, this layout was renovated in 2015 and was exhibited for the first time in 53 years by his children at the HRCA Exhibition in Burnham on Sea in Octber 2015.
    Stock comprises between 35 and 40 locomotives (One or two may be being overhauled), with about two thirds being electric powered and one third clockwork, there are three rakes of five Southern Railway coaches, a rake of five Southern suburban coaches, a rake of eight Pullman coaches, a rake of seven Midland maroon coaches, a rake of five teak coaches and a rake of five Great Western coaches. Goods stock consists of about 80 wagons, both private owner and from the four railway companies. Not all of this stock is able to be on the layout at any one time.
    A Youtube video of its renovation, first showing and dismantling at the end of the show can be seen by inserting Templefordrenovation into the youtube search box.
