00 layout for the younger set of all ages! 

Why Awdry St Nicolas?  Awdry in memory of the man who first put pen to paper and St Nicolas is the name of the parish church of King’s Norton where he was based at the time.

After 4 years of operation of ASN1 several shortcomings were identified and the decision was made to replace it with ASN2.

So with a proven idea a new layout was conceived, nothing complex but the ability to give kids the pleasure of “driving” a train with minimal intervention by the “fat controllers”.

The following is for guidance of exhibition managers/organisers

8ft square with the “fat controllers” at one end leaving the other three sides for the kids controllers on two or three of the other sides according to where the layout is situated.  The layout is about 30” or .75m high. It needs a free floor footprint of about 16ft  by 20ft

4 circuits independent circuits controlled by 4 user controllers that can be over ridden by the operators.

The kids controllers are mounted on wooden barriers, so no additional barriers are needed.

Transport to events would be in two cars - costs negotiable, dependent on distance travelled.

2 or three operators.

One five or six foot table required for the operator controls
