This section of the site shows a selection of models created by club members. These may be on a variety railway related subjects and in a range of scales, gauges and materials. Some are built from kits other scratch built or a combination. Where available each item has text describing the model itself and related information.

OO Gauge branch line halt

This model was designed for the club's shoe box challenge competition. Its a static model but shows how much modelling can be fitted in small space. Note the two clips on the right hand side that could provide power to the locomotive though the length of run is very short

EM Gauge goods yard

Another small layout built for the shoe box challenge. This shows a small goods platform and its associated hut. It uses EM gauge track, a slighter wider gauge than OO that is more prototypical.

OO gauge shunting layout

This model represents a small rail served engineering works. The buildings and ground cover are made from card / paper kits and modified to fit the location. For added interest a sector plate can be attached to the right hand side and power can be supplied to the model allowing wagons to be shunted between the sidings providing short wagons and small locos are used.  This was another entry in the shoe box challenge
