LAYOUT INFORMATION

O Gauge

  • Currently, only a Test Track is available for O Gauge.

O-16.5 Gauge

  • We are currently working on a layout called “Brickfields”.  It is set in 1910s and features a Brickworks in the last throws of decline.  The layout includes two scenic boards and a fiddle yard and integrates a Clay Mine, Brickworks and a local Station.

OO Gauge

  • Layout 1: DCC. This layout, called “Malingford” is in the middle stages of updating, rewiring and extending including fresh track.
  • Layout 2: Analogue. This layout, called “2 Ends” features a main station with a goods yard at one end and a fiddle yard at the other.

 

 

N Gauge

  • We have a small scenic N gauge layout, “Davis Halt”, simple to set up and operate.
  • Work is continuing on an American Layout named “Jim’s Creek” in memory of a former member who sadly died in 2018.

 

Test Tracks

  • We have test tracks in the three above mentioned gauges. Bring your loco’s and rolling stock along for a run.
