Dury's Gap is a OO scale micro layout designed to fit onto a standard 6' exhibition table, with a main scenic board of 45" x 12". plus a small storage yard. The prototype inspirations are the Rye Harbour Branch in East Sussex with a little bit of the Newhaven West Quay line. The line is set in the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s, is goods only and powered by small locomotives drawn from Brighton and Ashford Chant sheds. Goods rolling stock is a mix of kits and kitbashed and detailed RTR.
Most of the buildings are from Wills materials and some small section timber for the beach woodwork. The scenic base is hand towels over card formers, covered with a mix of static grass materials and ground foam.
