An OO gauge layout built by Stuart Carter. It is a Great Western branch line terminus layout. It measures 12 ft x 2ft. It is controlled using an NCE digital control unit. Some locomotive are fitted with sound chips. Stuart has made several You Tube videos describing how he built and detailed this layout look for “keep calm and make stuff”.

Garratt Lane

An OO gauge British outline layout, built by Andrew Nibbs.

This layout is set in Southern England with 3rd rail electric units operating into a terminus station. It took Andrew several weeks to fit the 3rd rail onto the track. There is also a military base that receives a constant supply of trains including “warwells” transporting various army vehicles. It is a DCC layout and the majority of diesel locomotives are fitted with sound chips. It measures 12ft by 2ft. and is a fiddle yard to terminus configuration.

St. Blaze

Another N gauge layout built by Brian Lee. It measures 8ft by 2ft and is a twin track continuous run layout. It is controlled using a Gaugemaster Prodigy Digital control system. Brian runs a good mix of old and modern rolling stock and attempts to keep something running all the time. Brian loves adding small scenic details to the layout and has included a small village, disused railway line on a viaduct and a seaside scene.

 

St. Mary’s Cove

This is the first N gauge layout that Brian Lee made. He has tried to show how much detail you can get in a small area of 3ft x 3ft. Brian is depicting this layout as a small preserved line operating in the West Country, this enables him to operate steam or diesel trains from any era. Brian has taken great care with the scenery and has included a beach scene with beach huts and sailing dinghy’s and a caravan site.

There will be some more members layouts to add to this page in the near future when they are completed.
