Kexby is inspired by the DVLR. Which ran from
York Layerthorpe to Cliff Common, and remained independent throughout
its existence. I’ve changed history, and assumed that the line was taken
over by the LNER. I’ve also assumed that nationalisation hasn’t taken
place, so even though the layout is set in the early 1950s, everything
is still in LNER livery.
This is the first time Kexby has been
exhibited. And over the next few years I intend to do a lot more work to
it. The cardboard buildings will be replaced by plastic ones from the
Wills Craftsman range. Many more details will be added to create cameo
scenes. And all of the rolling stock will be weathered, and added to
with some kit built locos augmenting the RTR items.
