  Layouts :

 All the layouts are functioning but the scenic development is not necessary  complete.

 The following layouts will be coming:

Broadham - OO

N Gauge modules from Ian, Mike & Paul.

The modules are a dog-bone in a U configuration. UK outline in N gauge running with DCC control.. .

The turning loops, at each end have auto polarity changing which enables continuous running.

Mike's module is populated with Metcalf buildings. 

Ian has a shuttle running along the back of his set of modules.

 Paul's turninning loops provide 2 storage yards , one at each end of thel layout.  One end is being sceniced. 

The current idea is based round a Norman keep and bailey.  .


 Dave Allen N gauge.

David is showing two examples of minimum sized layouts.

HS3. Proud to be going nowhere fast.

A small illuminated town is surrounded by two standard N gauge oval tracks.

One further oval is made with Kato Unitrack and is complete with a viaduct.

Trains running here include the Eurostar and The Flying Scot


Alongside there is an example of a Japanese Kato layout.

Kato unitrack clips together tracks and  makes multiple N gauge ovals complete with working points.

There willbe a collection of overseas trains, carriages and waggons.
