The layouts on this page have been retired. Although they have gone from the exhibition circuit they have not been forgotten and are remembered here.
Abbotsbrooke - N gauge
During the 1800's everybody wanted a railway connected to their town or village to move people and goods traffic. But many succumbed to the closing axe due to lack of patronage and increasing running costs together with the competition of the motor vehicle. Abbotsbrooke represents just one of these closed railways. Fortunately the preservation movement was able to purchase the line and then setup a preserved railway.
Calmoor - OO gauge
A preservation society has recently been sucessful in its bid to reopen the line from the town station at Calmoor to the line's jucntion with the national network.
Milton Monachorum - P4 fine scale
A fine scale Western Region layout set somewhere in South Devon in the mid to late 1950s. It serves a treacle mine, whilst up the line are china clay dries which provide the staple traffic.
Pindleton is based on a cross country mainline station and associated goods yard serving the town some three miles distant. Fortunately a small villiage sprang up around the station and this has been depicted on the layout. The period is set around the late 50s to early 60s, so steam is predominant with the occasional foray of of a diesel.
