Story

The themes are a modernised version of Brendam docks from the Thomas the tank series, & Knapford station. The layout will be Run by DCC control, as I want this layout to be controlled by modern technology. The layout is a model a 1:76 scale or “OO” gauge, it will be 16-foot-long by 8 foot wide.

I am doing this for my grandson Jordan Reid that has terminal cancer. Jordan who at such an early age has been struck down with Childhood Central Nervous System ATypical Teratoid / Rhabdoid Tumour? He has now been in hospital since being diagnosed on the 24th of June last year, at one point we thought we had lost him but he fought back with strength and determination. He is currently being treated at the Sheffield children’s hospital. the outcome or prognosis as they say is not very favourable for Jordan as of this moment it is still classed as terminal cancer, even now he still is unable to communicate with anybody as his vocal cords do not work because they have fused together. He has not long finished his last dose of radiotherapy. And the latest MRI scan results show that there is still cancer in his brain.

This project matters so much to me and my family that I thought i would share it with the model railway community. I am hoping that our model railway community may come together to help this little boy in his time of need.

Myself and a few volunteers are building a model railway layout in Jordan’s name, to raise funds for Sheffield Hospital Children’s Charity. we are still currently looking for premises for the layout to be setup so that we can prepare for model railway exhibitions next year, we have the backing of BRM magazine and Model Rail magazine for this project as well they would like to see this on show . so that we can raise the funds needed .

    I have an update on the progress of a premises for setting the exhibition layout up. i have now managed to secure the premises known as the Norfolk park school for special needs.The school has cavernous rooms and is ideal for this exhibition project. i wont be moving in until the end of august, which is ok with me as we have quite a few events planned for Jordan before that. I will soon be asking for volunteers to help in the build of this project. if you are free and available, and live in the Sheffield area. Contact kevanadams@hotmail.com

As Jordan's grandfather i have only his best interests in mind. i myself am disabled, but being with Jordan makes what i am going through seem tiny compared to his problems. i have for the past year devoted my life to making awareness of his cancer, and raising funds for Jordan.
