East London Finescale 2

 I think that out of all the good stuff on view at Rainham, this caught my eye most, purely for being atmospheric and different. Tower Pier is EM, based around CJF's Minories plan as is not so much a layout with signalling as a signal box with a layout. On its own it would have been good, but with the addition of scaled down block instruments and lever frame dominating the whole thing it's... well, different.
 And incedentally was among several exhibits with no backscene.

  1. I've seen this several times and find it appeals on a totally different level to most other layouts. I don't know why....perhaps it's just the unusual viewpoint or the block instruments or.....whatever, it draws the viewer in.
    As you quite rightly say, different!
