Stars of the Show 4: Loftus Road
The latest nomination for Stars of the Show is Loftus Road. This layout, owned and operated by the Worthing MRC, visited the Stafford show in 2015.
Here is a brief description from the club:
Loftus Road is based on suburban West London, inspired by Kensington Olympia, set in the time period 1995-present. Being on the West London Line, the layout sees a wide range of passing trains, from local & Cross-Country passenger traffic through to London Underground District Line services and Channel Tunnel freight.
The layout is DCC controlled and features scratchbuilt automated signalling. Several rolling stock features are also scratchbuilt including the Class 377 ‘Electrostar’ EMUs. Loftus Road was recently extended, with new scenic areas including a busy London High Street, a scratchbuilt petrol station, a model of ‘Earls Court’ and a depiction of a London Crossrail excavation.

Once again it shows what is possible to achieve in terms of realism.
