Bembridge, Isle of Wight

I keep returning to Bembridge, on the Isle of Wight, as a near perfect small branch line terminus.  A scale model fits within 4′ in ‘N’ gauge.

And with the beach directly to the left, a sea backscene would be needed.

The only difficult bit is building the little end-on-line turntable.

    Faller make a small motorised wooden wagon turntable which would be ideal for the turntable here, it’s definitely the right size for turning a terrier…
