Loftus Road is based on suburban West London, inspired by Kensington Olympia, set in the time period 1995-present. Being on the West London Line, the layout sees a wide range of passing trains, from local & Cross-Country passenger traffic through to London Underground District Line services and Channel Tunnel freight.
The layout is DCC controlled and features scratchbuilt automated signalling. Several rolling stock features are also scratchbuilt including the Class 377 ‘Electrostar’ EMUs. Loftus Road was recently extended, with new scenic areas including a busy London High Street, a scratchbuilt petrol station, a model of ‘Earls Court’ and a depiction of a London Crossrail excavation.
A busy day at Loftus Road as a Silverlink '150' rubs shoulders with a Southern '171'.
A Lycra-clad cyclist and BMW X5 driver have a heated exchange...who's in the right? Another standard day in London!
We’re all ready to play trains at the Southampton MRC show in Eastleigh this weekend, please do pop down and say hello!
