Mike Norris has been building a model of Preston station for over forty years. With a scenic section covering twenty feet, the model is an accurate, scale length depiction of the North Union side of the station.
Built for authentic operation, the model features recreations of all the signal boxes responsible for controlling the routes through the station, using miniature versions of the block instruments.
Articles on Preston have appeared in Model Railway Journal: ‘Operating Preston’ in issue 204 and ‘Block Instruments’ in issues 219 and 220.
Mike brings us up to date with a look around the layout as it is today.
