A MICRO LAYOUT COMPETITION!
This is a photo of an English micro layout being built in a box file in OO scale (16.5mm gauge)! It’s called Melbridge Box Co. and is under construction by Phil Parker of the Double O Gauge Association. The little line demonstrates the kinds of layouts that meet the challenge of building a OO layout in a box file. That’s the object of the competition sponsored by the Association and chaired by Phil. More details are available at the Association’s website.
Phil’s work in progress is shown in some more photos below, mostly taken from his web page. It’s not an entry in the challenge, but makes a wonderful demonstration layout. A box file, by the way, measures roughly 10x14x3 inches. The competition is open to worldwide entrants, who need not be present to win. Phil will take care of postal entries–make contact with him through his web site to learn more.
