I thought of you immediateley when I saw that.
The tipper wagon bodies were made from card! The wagon chassis (except for one modified Bachman) were homemade from brass with HO wheelsets. The locos were all scratchbuilt too.
What I really liked about this layout was the falling scenery towards the front with the line on 3 levels.
The operating mechanism was amazing and has given me a few ideas too.
The spooky thing was the name...Saint Aubin....and also the briqueterie theme. He had never heard of the Briqueterie Lagrive at Lisieux. All this was built from imagination.
This was his first exhibition and Jean Claude was deseperately trying to book him for Railexpo. I hope he was successful.
Location : Alsace, France

Thanks Carl, for the picture of the Tenterden signal box. It was the prototype for the one on my Kent & North Wales Light Railway. I got to the Swanley NG show too. Well worth the effort, but sadly I didn´t take any photos. Much inspiration for those of us who model in larger scales.
