A Model Railway Layout portraying the Sheppey Light Railway Terminus

Welcome to the website of Leysdown, a model railway layout portraying, in 4mm to the foot scale, the terminus of the Sheppey Light Railway as it would have appeared in the early 1930s under Southern Railway ownership.

The Isle of Sheppey is an island off the northern coast of Kent in the Thames Estuary, some 46 miles to the east of London. "Sheppey" is derived from the ancient Saxon "Sceapige", meaning isle of sheep, and even today the extensive marshes which make up a considerable proportion of the island provide grazing for large flocks of the animals.
