Built on two 'left-over 3'x1' boards Froxington was a rather half-hearted attempt at a 4mm light railway. I never liked the Peco OO track in this setting and the choice of spud mechs for most of the motive power was not a good choice. The whole thing less the station building ended its life at the local dump. The stock however has been retained and may see the light of day in another guise.

|The 'goods shed' was simply a Wills shed on top of a platform made from matchsticks and coffee stirrers. Inspired by a structure on the Southwold Railway. The PO wagon is from a Cambian kit and the LNWR 2 plank is a bash from ratio parts.|
