As i am a member i have a On30 module but i have started a OO one
Over the last few years i have tryed to build a layout based on the Brookwood Necropolis Railway

Prototype History
The Necropolis scheme started by a Act of Parliament on June 30th 1852 to be run by the London Necropolis Company & was finally established in 1853 when a Private terminus was built outside of Waterloo station plus the line in to Brookwood cemetery which was Consecrated on the 7th of November 1854 opening to the public 6 days later from then on a daily funeral train ran
The L.S.W.R provided the rolling stock for this service building 6 hearse vans each van could carry 12 coffins split onto two levels
In 1899 two more hearses were built this time carrying 24 coffins each split onto 3 levels these vans were Numbered 377 & 378 being re numbered by Southern Railway 1425 & 1426 The last of these vans No 1426 was still in SR livery in 1950 no known date for when it was finally scrapped
The 1st London termini was at York Street & was used until the 11th of February 1902 when a new one opened 188 Westminster Bridge Road the move came about because the station at Waterloo was improved
Westminster Bridge Road Station was then used until 16th April 1941 when it was hit in the heaviest bombing raid during the London Blitz this day was known by Londoners as the Wednesday
Notes from the SR air raid log book states
11.02 pm ??¦.stock in Necropolis sidings damaged by fire
12.05 am ??¦. Damage to railway arch near Newnham Terrace & Carlisle Lane (arch is near the Necropolis Station)
1.35 am ??¦. H.E & Incendiary bombs fell on the Necropolis sidings at 10.30pm 1 coach wrecked. Saloon coach & 1st burnt out plus the end of another burnt out
On the15th/ 16th of April 1941 the station closed for good and the rest of the railway getting little use from then till 1945 the LNC stop all rail services
The line in Brookwood cemetery had 2 stations plus a 1 siding for the stone masons??™ yard the stations were built out of wood & to the sane design trains were push up the line there were no run round facilities on the line


there are photos of the London station here

The New layou will be a stand alone one as well as able to be used with the CRM OO odule layout
the track plan is a single track running across the bored with 2 goods sidings & a a siding with a engine shed plus a small holt with my Necropolis Railway the railway will have its own stock & the Cemetery Branch runs of off the Metropoltian Railways line

heres a link to my last try at building this railway
