Cliddesden 1916 (N Gauge)

The Basingstoke and Alton Light Railway

Cliddesden Station (L&SWR) in North Hampshire. The period of the model railway is August 1916, a few months before track was lifted and sent to France for use during the great war of 1914-18. In 1924 track was relaid and service resumed. It closed forever in 1936. Today, the railway and station have returned to nature. The houses are still there, albeit much modified for 21st century needs.

The model railway was built by Ed and David Smith between October 2011 and October 2012 at a cost of about £300 including rolling stock, and about 150 hrs. of mostly scratch built work.

Cliddesden won best in show at the BNHMRS show March 2015 and featured in the March 2016 issue of Railway Modeller magazine.

The model layout is available for exhibition in the area shown below.
