ASHPRINGTON ROAD



Ashprington Road is a layout built by Graham Plowman which features extensively on this website. It is based on early 1960's BR Western Region practice, set in the South Brent (Devon) area.

The layout appeared in the June 2011 edition of Hornby magazine. The following are the pictures which were published.
