The view along the street over the tunnel at the Stage Right end. This is a row of Kestral terrace houses to the right of the photo and a single shop unit to the left with Langley post box and telephone box. This area needs a bit more - I am thinking of a a sign on the shop and maybe a for sale/for lease sign on one of the houses. A car or maybe two parked along the street but as the layout is nominally set in the late 1950s the amount of cars around would be small.
Stage Left exit - the branch line at St Alban's Abbey goes left, towards the ECML (since it was an ex-GNR branch) but mine climbs and goes right, over the main line. The main line (ex-LNWR line to Watford Junction and thence Euston) should be single track but part of the modifications to make life a bit easier for exhibitions had it doubled. The Autotrain, being Western Region is on test!
