Dons Miniature New Street September 1994
In this video by Chris Spencer, we take a look at the late Don Jones OO Scale Birmingham New Street Model Railway. Don Jones model railway was both indoors & outdoors & it’s jewel in the crown was the model Don built of Birmingham city center. Don used to hold an openday for charity most years & it’s on the open day Chris Spencer filmed this video.
The railway also ran around Don’s back garden & featured ponds, other stations & a full scale power station too!! Well worth a watch. Don was one of the early pioneers of taking a OO scale model railway layout & building it outdoors. The layout was featured many moons ago in the Railway Modeller Magazine. Our team member Iain says he was also lucky enough to visit this layout, & said he & one of his freinds had a very enjoyable afternoon spent there.
Here’s the video…
