Buntingford to Broxfield on a busy day 1959 By Roger Lattimore
Like so many of us my model railway ambitions are based on my recollections as a small boy. Trainspotting destinations Broxbourne and Hatfield in Hertfordshire have become Broxfield on my layout. I am in my tenth year of building it and since retirement progress has been more rapid. The layout is in a ‘Station House’ at the bottom of my garden measuring 36’ x 12’ with a decking platform out front and a full length canopy with daggar edging. Basically it’s a model railway enthusiast’s dream scenario brought about by several strokes of good luck. To do it justice I have worked on the detail and autheticity for an era of 1956 to 1959. I have included the Ware, Hadham and Buntingford branch line for which I have fond memories particularly the part which ran through the Easneye Estate to the north of Ware.
A very busy day at Rye House Junction goods depot! 79
