MERS LES BAINS   CHEMIN DE FER DE COTE DE PICARDIE

Mers les Bains will be exhibited at Lille in April 2017

A French metre gauge station in 1/32nd scale, representing a small port and holiday resort on the Picardy coast in the early 1950's.
Mers-les-Bains is a real place, a resort in the south of Picardy adjacent to Le Treport, and it is still served by a standard gauge line
but we have imagined a metre gauge system terminating in the town on the quayside, the Picardy Coast Railway or Chemin 
de Fer de Cote de Picardie. 

We have made no attempt to portray the real Mers les Bains, other than the name the layout is pure imagination.

All the loco's and stock are scratchbuilt, the track is hand built using C&L components, and all the buildings are also scratchbuilt. 
We use DCC control and all the loco's have sound. 

The layout needs two operaters and is transported in a hire van (standard Transit size).
.

An article on the tram locomotives has appeared in Voie Libre, and the April 2015 Contientnal Modeller had an article on the layout.
