Layout 1 - Bailong : 2000 - 2006

The Bailong railway was my first attempt at building a Chinese layout that was ultimately doomed. It was a winter themed layout based in Northern China comprising of a double track mainline with a banking station in the center and a small factory complex at one end. The layout lasted approximately 2 years before being dismantled to make way for successor layout, Wangkui (see below). More photos of this layout will appear shortly. 

Layout 2 - Wangkui : 2006 - 2011

Wangkui was my second layout, taking nearly four years to construct before sadly being disassembled in late 2010 due to the sale of the house. This was a huge undertaking with a size of 24' x 12 feet and over 250 meters of track. This was a fictitious layout based in Heilongjiang province consisting of the cities of Wangkui, Anda, Daqing & Suihua. The layout was far from finished, however the whole process of building it with my friend Peter was very valuable and thoroughly enjoying. More photos of this layout will appear shortly. 

Layout 3 - Anda : 2017 -

Anda is my third and current layout. It is currently built in modules of 1.2m x 0.8m modules. Once we move house again in the near future, I will incorporate it into a much larger system. At present, I have a fairly paultry 4.8 meters in length, however this means I can focus on smaller areas and hopefully actually complete these sections! I am using this space for a local coal railway with space to add a main line later on. I am aiming to run full night operations. More photos of this layout will appear shortly.
