At the recent Modern Image O Gauge Show in Rawtenstall Richard Watson captured the fantastic Apethorn Junction in action for Hornby Magazine. Apethorn Junction represents a fictional junction station in North West England. The layout takes its inspiration from books such as those from Foxline, which cover the East Lancs/Greater Manchester region at the beginning of the diesel era. It models the late 1960s when green diesels took over from steam through to the post-TOPS era of late 1970s covering Britsh Rail blue. The layout is DCC operated and features sound, colour light signalling and computer control for route setting.
