West End is set in the mid 1970s in the North West of England, and represents part of a small terminus, which has survived owing to the existence of freight services "off-stage". The chosen time period and approximate location fit with my earliest memories of British Rail.
It will be my first P4 layout to be completed, although I have had several false starts over the last 20+ years. The D&E Challenge has been the catalyst to finally get me going.
The track plan is of course highly derivative and un-original, and is designed to fit into the only space available at home - an extra 0.5m in length would have been handy but would have been too much of a squeeze.
