In its present form Tansey Bank represents the main terminal station and engine shed on a preserved ex-industrial railway somewhere around Warwickshire in the early 1960’s.

All of the rolling stock operating on the layout is either kit-built or a ready-to-run item. The stock has been fitted with Greenwich couplings which have proved reliable and given automatic uncoupling on a layout that is hopefully free from “the hand of God”. Every part of the layout has been weathered with acrylic paint, brown ink and matt varnish to create a uniform work-stained appearance.

Tansey Bank was featured in the October 2013 edition of Hornby Magazine.

If you have any questions about anything you see on the layout don’t hesitate to ask – things are never too busy down at Tansey Bank to stop and chat.
