De Lage Zij (The Low Side) is a typical Dutch model railroad. The theme is set in the Midwest of Holland during the sixties. The fictitious town of Zwabberdam plays a leading role in the layout plan.

Meopham East Junction Open link in new window
This layout is of the same theme to my last layout "Brockley Green SE4" but it is most certainly different.The theme is still Southern Electrics but this time in a circular format and in 00 scale. I have entered the 21st. century with DCC power but now supplied by the Roco Multimaus system with Master and Slave handsets.

To allow more than a little diversity and to stop the stock accumulating excessive mileages, the layout is run on a sliding timescale. Starting with steam powered trains in the shape of a class C 0-6-0 on a ferry van train, and a Battle of Britain, "Spitfire" on a passenger working. They are aguemented by a Jubilee 4-6-0 on an inter regional parcels train, a 4-EPB and a 2-EPB/2-HAP/2-EPB EMU trio. Phase two is the replacement of the Jubilee by a Kent Coast electric locomotive, a class 71 but now without the overhead knitting. The C class's ferry van train is then withdrawn altogether. The passenger set will become a "never was" preservation special powered by a class L 4-4-0 "German" and a class D11/2 "Laird of Balmawhappe".

Phase three sees the EMU's being upgraded into one train of a pair of green 4-CEPs with a blue MLV on the rear. The fourth phase sees the 4-CEP's repainted into the blue/grey scheme and a second MLV in similar. Also running are a pair of 2-EPB's also carrying the blue livery. Finally, in phase five there are further additions, firstly with the ferry van train reappearing as a class 92 electric locomotive powering an intermodal train. The second addition is a "Corporate" blue class 47 hauling blue/grey stock on a "Jolly Boy's" outing to Margate. All pale ale and whelks no doubt.

The third addition has seen the passage through Meopham of a new "Desiro" set hauled by a class 66, enroute from the manufacturers in Germany. Look for the stowaways on the roof.

Model railroads in Germany Ed Pick Open link in new window
A huge urban dead end terminus station on a small 6,6 x 3,3 feet model train table? And, in addition, a continuous run for long trains? Seems to be an almost impossible undertaking at first. But when I came up in 2008 with this idea, room space, time and budget were short. So how to proceed? Doing the BIG Bluff was the answer! See the track plan for more details. Here the pictures and the "Making of"!

The website gives information about model railroading in Germany (manufacturers, scales) and features a 1:160 scale layout of the Munich Central Station.

New York and Long Branch in HO Open link in new window
This web site was created to document the progress of my HO (1:87) model railroad of the New York and Long Branch Railroad, NY&LB (the present North Jersey Coast Line) between the years 1952 and 1958. The layout is located in the basement of my home in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ just two blocks from the North Jersey Coast Line. I am building a double-deck shelf type layout to maximize the 38 scale miles of linear footage. The layout will use DCC control and sound.
