Custom Made Layouts by The Little Layout Company
The Little Layout Company
For this article we take a look at ‘The Little Layout Company’. The Little Layout Company is owned & run by our good friends Neil & Lacey Mason. They provide a complete layout design & build service which include: Design and build any size layout to suit the customers needs and space they have available. So every thing from just baseboards, to track and wiring, or even a simple layout for you to add your own personal touches. If you’ve dreamed of having a complete exhibition standard layout they will build you it.
They will even come to you to build your fixed resident layout, or even help give your layout a new look with custom bespoke scratch built buildings.
Neil’s layouts have been featured in various model magazines the likes of Model Rail, BRM. One of my personal favorites of Neils layouts is ‘Masons Lane’. You can see more of their layouts here: http://thelittlelayoutcompany.co.uk/projects/
On many of their projects you may see our own range of scalemodelscenery.co.uk kits appear. Neil & Lacey have put the kits to great use with a mix of scratch built items as well as other off the shelf items. The amount of details that Neil & Lacey fit in on a small layout is fantastic. It’s well worth spending some time carefully studying their layouts to spot all the little details. More details on the Little Layout Company can be found here:http://thelittlelayoutcompany.co.uk/
A list of some of The Little Layout Company layouts are as follows:
- Thornley TMD
- Blue Gowt Junction
- Eddington Yard
- Cannon Dale
- Werrington Yard
- Deeping Lane
- Masons Lane
As the time of writing one of the projects on the go is this layout which is yet to be named. A TMD three road depot in the making. The layout features two parts these being a scenic section & the other being a fiddle yard storage section. The track work is being hand built. On the right here you can see the newly installed hand built track work.
The other thing that Neil has installed on this project is a lighting unit to illuminate the scenic section. Neil has used Copper strips on the inside of the front fascia board. These transfer the power up to the L.E.D lighting strip with no intrusion on the scenic area. In the three images below you can see how Neil has done this.
Many thanks to Neil, Lacey & Alan.
