Pelham Street is a club layout and was conceived as an easy first step into railway modelling for a group of club members who wanted to move on from the 'train set' stage.
The layout is based around the use of British Railways Speed link services in the city of Lincoln. It is totally fictional although it has been inspired by photographs in books and the internet.
Operating the layout in a realistic manner and understanding the reasons behind the movements is something new to many in the group.
The track work makes use of Peco Setrack products because they were already available. The whole layout measures 4 ft x 2 ft and has separate legs which are tall enough to allow good viewing angles for the operators. The layout can be operated on DC analogue or DCC systems. As the layout is small, the rolling stock has been chosen to give us maximum operating potential, representing the period 1984 to 1990. Smaller diesel locos are the most effective.
