Auch Ae Introduction  

Exhibition Manager Details 

Auch Ae is a 4mm scale Scottish Region locomotive shed coded 68F based in the 1960s. The layout is more or less complete with just some of the finishing detail to add. All the track work has been laid using Peco code 75 track and wired for DCC operation. The points are  controlled using Cobalt iP Digital motors via a Cobalt Alpha Central integrated 12-way digital switch unit  Actual train control is via an NCE controller. The buildings on the layout are scratch built and are based on prototypes in Scotland. The layout will be   operated with a mixture of steam and diesel locomotives with many featuring working sound. The layout has been in making for a number of years and is work of a small group of Redditch Model Railway Club members. The layout has very much been a product of cramming as much in a small area to both give operational interest and allow the finished product to be easily transported to exhibitions in a small hatchback car. The layout was first shown at the Redditch Model Railway Club Exhibition in 2019 in a very much unfinished state. Much time has been spent since to bring the layout up to a far more complete state.
