Carlisle Canal

Carlisle Canal was the former North British engine shed in Carlisle, coded 12C under nationalisation. The layout is set in LNER days, where the shed served the Waverly route up to Edinburgh, and Eastern region routes across to Newcastle.

The layout is around 10ft x 2ft, and features the large coaling tower, ash sidings, and a roundhouse/long-shed combination. It is, as any shed based layout, intended mainly for the display of locomotives.  The layout will be built primarily for DCC operation. Construction started in mid-2017.
