Cheffley (OO)

Cheffley is a sleepy town that may have been served by the Southern Railway in August 1939. The station buildings are still painted in the colours of the LSWR due to funding issues. The town is a branch line terminus for fast passenger services from Waterloo operated by the new electrified trains. However, some local services are still operated by venerable steam locomotives.
The forty or so structures include kits from the Petite Properties range and a selection of modified “down-loadable” card kits by Scalescenes. The folly is a scratch-build based on an article that appeared in Model Rail magazine. The station and signal box are “enhanced” out of production card kits depicting the buildings at Midsomer Norton. If you look closely you might glimpse a peddling cyclist and some pecking chickens. Featured in RM July ’19 and Model Rail June ’21. Best in Show at Beaconsfield ’19, Guildford ’20 and Minehead ’22.
