Burnham on Sea


Burnham on Sea is my first attempt to model an actual place, using photos, magazines and books for information. Construction of the baseboards is from plywood with Sundeala tops, with integral legs made from 2” x 1” timber.

Buildings are scratch built from Plasticard with the exception of the Queen’s Hotel on the sea front which was made by Ken Ball. Track is Peco Finescale (code 55), turnouts are Electrofrog and control is by AMR. Electromagnets are scattered about in strategic places for uncoupling.

The aim is to have a small S & D terminus with hands free shunting. The long platform at the front was the excursion one and specials ran into Burnham for a few years after regular services were withdrawn.
