Using a mix on words, Draxborough is a fictitious Power
Station scene based partly on Richborough and Drax

modern TMD, Refuelling Point, Halt, Factory Space,
Fishing Pond and Golf Course. The layout dimensions are
15’ 6” x 5’ 3”.

automotive connectors. The idea is to reduce the amount of
soldering and allows us to isolate each board for easier fault finding
that we hope will never happen. Well of course that’s what you hope!
