Default BEIJIAO - my Chinese HO exhibition layout

I thought it time to showcase my Chinese HO layout here on Modelrailwayforum.

It's been about 7 years in the making so far and will make it's public debut at the Bristol show on May 4/5/6.

It's 26ft x 10ft and being built in a 14ft x 8ft shed!

The layout features three separate lines in the scenic area.

1. An industrial coal mine line.

2. A double track China Rail line

3. A single track provincial line

The setting is the outskirts of a medium size city and the approaches to large mainline station which is off-scene.

As a teaser here is the trackplan of the scenic section .....

Here is a photo of a workers passenger train on a typical Chinese industrial railway - not quite what we're used to in the UK!

That looks really good. I like the washing hanging in the balcony of a flat!
