VIDEO: Central Works in O gauge

The layout depicts an industrial scene featuring a car assembly plant. It has two segments, the mainline exchange sidings and the industrial section of the factory complex.

The location is based on the intense network of sidings that once existed at Longbridge in Birmingham. Although this was an Austin factory, the location may be adjusted to feature other makes of vehicles and thus regions of operation. A feature of this layout is the backscene with its lighting effects and steam/smoke emissions from the various factory processes.
