Amiens 1918 - Tracks and Trenches
OO9 Gauge with 4ft viewing length
Set during World War, this scene depicts a re-captured Artillery Battery which is being used as an Allied field headquarters and supply depot. Troops and tanks
are prepared for the next offensive and the depot is served by a narrow gauge field railway. Supply trains are hauled by a mixture of British, US, French and
captured German rolling stock and stream through the Battery with tons of equipment and material, that will ultimately lead to victory on the Western Front.
Ashdan Junction is a fictional area based on the Cheltenham to Worcester line set during the Indian summer of 1976. This also corresponded with the last
months of class 52 western operations. Ashdan Town station is a train spotting paradise with all kinds of traction to be seen on a variety of freight and
passenger duties. Classes 20, 24, 25, 31, 37, 40, 47 and 52s can all be seen operating the busy freight movements while local passenger duties are still loco
hauled usually in the hands of a class 31 or class 52 Western.
Avyn-a-Llyin is the next fictitious village along the line from the previous layout known as 'Llandovnodd'. The layout has Welsh origins hence the name, although
you will realise the name isn't Welsh if you say it the English way. The modelling is of the highest standards with the pier being of timber construction with
each upright individually screwed into place. Most of the buildings are scratch built in linka and plasticard with two of the roofs finished in genuine hand cut Welsh
slate and three roofs are thatched with plumbers hemp in Pendon style.

1930's through to 1960's but at times you might see current day stock.
Little Aller Junction
N Gauge with 7ft viewing length
This layout is a caricature of Aller Junction near Newton Abbot in Devon and hence is called Little Aller Junction. It is set in the summer around 1963 to 1966
when diesel hydraulics were in command although the occasional steam hauled train may be seen.

LED street lighting, depot lighting and the installation of sound decoders in a selection of locomotives.
Marsh Chipping is a fictional layout based on the Western Region in the early 1960's. The track plan is based on Chipping Campden, with an added branch, while the
goods shed is based on the one at Moreton-in-Marsh - hence the name!

town of Sidmouth in East Devon. The line was opened in 1874 and this model represents Sidmouth when it was operated by British Railways Southern Region in the
Summer of 1959 or 1960. During this period there would have been around 15 trains each way per day, including through coaches from London Waterloo.
Stapleforth St. Stephens
N Gauge with 15ft viewing length
The layout is an N gauge mainline of freelance design, with a track plan designed to provide train movements which are entertaining and hopefully appreciated
by those watching and a headache to the operators if they make a mistake. It is set at the time of the Privatisation Era (1995-present) and you will see
representations of all locomotives and stock which have run during the last 17 years.
St Martin's Wharf
O Gauge with 12ft viewing length
A light railway inspired by the Colonel Stephens railway empire. The line is somewhere in East Anglia, the terminus is beside a once navigable river and takes
its name from the ruined abbey behind the station. The period is 1930 and the rolling stock follows Colonel Stephens' principles; there is nothing new, all
second or third hand hence the age of the stock is reflected in the finish of the vehicle

the late 1930s, after the station layout had been expanded to its maximum extent, and after the earlier multi-bay platform canopies had been replaced with more
modern versions. The layout is 4mm to the foot, EM with a track gauge of 18mm. The prototype layout has been followed as closely as possible within the
constraints of the available space.

details including a switch compound showing switch details from 500kv and 250kv to grid. The boiler house has four Babcock & Wilcox boilers and low pressure
steam condensers. Two 300 foot cooling towers dominate the layout and feature seawater cooling pipes.
Villefranche Le Chapelle
HO Gauge with 10ft viewing length
Villefranche-la-Chapelle is a small layout designed to show a shunting yard in a fictional French town in the 1990s. The yard serves a number of industries
and portrays the atmosphere of a typical French small town and its still-active rail system, something that had disappeared from the British rail scene
in the 1960s.
OO Gauge with 19ft viewing length
