Lewes (2mm/FS)

Lewes (2mmFS) portrays the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway at Lewes in Sussex as it was in 1886.

Following on from our successful build of Hinksey Yard, the “little people” of the Club decided to stretch ourselves and build a 2mmFS layout. We had enjoyed building a model of a real place, so looked for something similar, but totally different in era and location. So we looked at maps, photographs and plans and came up with the idea of building the second Lewes station as it was in 1886, just before it was rebuilt into its more familiar current form.

We are recording how we built this layout - follow our progress on RMWeb
