Layouts will be added as confirmed


Parracombe : 009  :  1920's era
Situated a few miles south of the preserved Woody Bay station in North Devon, Parracombe Halt was on the 2ft. gauge Lynton & Barnstaple railway that ran 19 miles across the edge of Exmoor to connect Lynton with the standard gauge LSWR network at Barnstaple Town station.
Parracombe is modeled in 4mm scale in the 1920’s period, around the change of ownership from the independent Lynton & Barnstaple Railway Co., to the Southern Railway.

Kings End  :  00  :  Late BR/ Network South East era
'Kings End' is a fictitious small Rural Town based in the South of England. It is a busy and popular Terminus branch line, which benifits from a good rail service of both passenger and freight trains, from throughout the South. 
One of the largest employers in the town is 'Monarch Brewery' which is served by both road and rail traffic. There is also a local coal merchant (Kings Coal), which receives it deliveries by rail and ships out via road transport to the local area and beyond.

Woody Lane  :  009  :  Late 1950 - 1970's era
Woody Lane is conveniently located on the border of Dorset and North Wales. Set in a period between the late 50’s to 1970 the use of "my modellers licence has been extensive to create an idyllic scene capturing an era which I remember well."

Lambeth Walk  :  33mm to 1ft  :  
The real Lambeth Walk never saw trams but this layout is an evocation of the last days of London’s trams and is located in inner south London within sight and sound of Big Ben. This
location explains the lack of overhead electric wires – banned by the inner London Boroughs – and the use of the centre conduit system with electric pick up from a “plough” carried by all trams.

Crewe CW2 (Gresty Bridge)  :  00 :  
Crewe CW2 is a reflection of the DRS Depot at Gresty Bridge. Fully DCC with sound and lighting
Situated on the site of the old GWR wagon works, Gresty Bridge now thrives servicing the current fleet of DRS locos and rolling stock.

Bryn llwyd  : 0  :
A 16ft x 3ft layout depicting the eclectic mix of railways and stock found on the Welsh Narrow Gauge Railways.
Narrow Gauge through station with 2 other stations one with passing loop.

Boscawen Junction : N : 1985 - 1995
Boscawen Junction is set in the diesel electric era between 1985 and 1995 and the stock reflects the change from the BR blue era to sectorisation. It is a fictional layout based on the Cornish mainline. It draws inspiration from the Parkandillack Branch where it joins the mainline at Burngullow and also from Chacewater where there was a Blue Circle cement depot and disused station.
