Layouts
At the moment we have two Club exhibition layouts, one is in N Gauge and the other OO
Gauge. A new modular N Gauge is being planned but is in it's early stages at the moment.
We have also started a new OO Guage layout for our new and younger members to gain
experience of the hobby..


DYDLEY JUNCTION is an N Gauge layout 4' X 2'6". It is an
exercise in trying to get as much in a small space as possible,
using proprietry kits and bits whilst achieving realism and
operating interest. It is a Junction Station and is now finished
Members Layouts

Five of our members have exhibition layouts and others have home based layouts. These layouts are :-
MANSTON AIRPORT is Andy Hoppers "what might have been"
had a rail link been put into Manston Airport in the steam era. It
is 14' X 2' and is now much in demand on the exhibition circuit.

DURSTON is a new layout by member Brian
Woolrich. It is OO 4mm scale and incorporates
the station platform ends, goods facilities and
engine servicing area of a 1936 GWR station.



ON SHED is our President, Dennis Prior's latest
layout designed to show of his collecetion of 4mm
Steam Locomotives. It had its first showing at our
2006 Exhibition.

BIGBURY is our new OO Gauge layout and it made its
first public appearence at our 2010 show. It is a fictional
branch line terminus somewhere in NW Hampshire, the
future of which was secured by the opening of an army
maintenance depot for Armoured Fighting Vehicles. The
period modelled is the mid 1950's




Home
HAVERHILL SOUTH is Martin Allens first attempt at
2mm Fine Scale modelling. The layout represents the
terminus of the Colne Valley and Halstead Railway on
the Essex/Suffolk borders.
CHILLINGBOURNE is a typical small Southern Region
branch line station in the late steam era. It belongs to
Geoff White and is OO gauge, 4mm scale. The country
station serves a village which is over a mile away as
was fairly typical of a lot of such stations. This
fictional station was featured in the film "Canterbury
Tales" set in WW II in the local area.
ABBOTS BARTON is jointly owned by members
Dennis Prior and his son Chris. It is a terminus station
serving a small but rapidly developing commuter
town somewhere South West of London. It is set in
the 1950 to1970 period and sees a number of EMU
stock as well as diesel and some steam motive power.
NONINGTON QUAY is our new OO Gauge layout and is a
projectstarted for our newer and younger members or
those less experienced so that they can learn and
develop their skills. It made its first public appearence at
our 2015 show as bare baseboards with track laying in
progress. It is a fictional dockside yard with a branch line
terminus at a higher level. The layout represents no
specific period so that our members can run almost any
thing they want.
