Club Layouts

The club has several layouts in development and in operation. A short description of each is given below, with more information in the linked pages.

Leicester (Belgrave Road) – a large OO layout based on the Great Northern terminus at Leicester in the late 50s/early 60s. Featured in Hornby magazine, July 2017. Available for exhibition bookings.

Pentre Road – a continuous-run finescale OO layout based based on the North and West Route shared GWR/LMS secondary mainline in the 1930s. Built using MERG components extensively, and designed to allow DCC or DC operation. Under construction, start of scenery.

“The new OO layout” – an OO gauge layout currently in the earlier stages of construction. Conceived as something of a “training” layout for those members of the club wanting to get a bit more experience. A proper name is still under consideration!

Three Bridges – a 2mm finescale layout currently under construction.

Thomas and Friends Junior Playground – a double-loop layout inspired by the ever-popular Thomas the Tank Engine. Designed to be operated by children at exhibitions, with a controller for each line.

Others to add in 2mmFS, N, OO, and O
