TEMPLEFORD; 30ft vintage 0 Gauge
Originally built in 1959 and exhibited in 1960 and 1962  in our childhood home town of Malvern by the late Laurie Tandy, this layout has been renovated in 2015 and was exhibited for the first time in 53 years by his children. Website here
This almost unique Vintage O gauge layout is mainly Hornby with a strong Southern Railway bias, but all of the Big Four companies are represented.

The "Lakeview & Haveawatch" Railway  -  N Gauge
Inspired by the Cumbrian “Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway” preserved line,

St Stevens  -  N Gauge
St Stevens is a small Cornish parish with a single platform terminus on a branch from the Paddington to Penzance
mainline; set in the present day.

Readham – “inspired by BUT NOT Reading and Cheltenham”

The station features 3 full length platforms and 1 bay platform. Readham is set in a semi fictional region that ‘allows’ the operation of FGW/GWR, Arriva Trains Wales, Cross Country and South West Trains. The station also sees a lot of freight movements, either straight through or held on platform 4 waiting for a path in between passenger operations. Although a Modern Image layout you will see the occasional ‘Diesel Special’ and a couple of kettles (Clan Line and Thomas Hardy) put in an appearance for steam specials. Our intention is to keep the station busy and our motto is “no timetable, just trains – a lot of them”.

Melangoose  -  OO gauge  Modern mage

Circleton Village  -  N Gauge
Circleton Village is a compact layout based around a fictional heritage railway operation. The premise of the

steam tank locomotives running on the line.

A notional extension of the Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway to the town of St. Mary’s, located close to the real life town of Meifod in Montgomeryshire.

GŐTTINGEN SŰD     9ft  -  N plus N Scale/Z gauge (N+Nm)
This is a representation of the station and interchange yard at Göttingen Süd between the standard gauge feeder line and the 750mm gauge Gartetalbahn, which ran along a valley to the south east of Gőttingen in Lower Saxony in Germany.

Abbey Light Railway    Scale: 1:43.5 (British ‘O’) Gauge: 14mm (2’ gauge)
The Abbey Light Railway was a 2’ gauge line built in 1976 by a group of enthusiasts in the grounds of Kirkstall Abbey in Leeds. The railway closed in 2012 and sadly no longer exists, except here in model form and in the memories of all those involved. The layout depicts three scenes from the railway; the shed area, the bridge and level crossing, and the Abbey end terminus.

Over The Top  12ft - 1/35 Scale Layout, 60cm Gauge WDLR
This model represents the final stages of the 1st World War somewhere along the western front.
It tries to incorporate as many features of the trench warfare scene as possible, rather than depicting any particular location on the western front.
