Model Railway

Photos of the model railway I built as a teenager 1971-73

The last photo was taken just before I dismantled the layout in mid 1973. Why dismantle it then? To pass 5th form exams I needed to concentrate on my studies, and the model railway was too much of a distraction! This is a scan of the original contact print. The photo was taken with a cheap Kodak Brownie camera (620 roll film, fixed aparture, plastic lens). The orange streak was caused by stray light getting into the film roll.
