La Garita Hills is a 0n30 scale American outline layout set in Colorado in the late 1940's. I assumes that a spur line was constructed from Moffat on the Denver Rio Grand Railroad after the successful mining of gold in the late nineteenth century. The railroad handles brewery and livestock traffic, and tourists are now making the area popular. The scenic area is 3.6 metres long by 1 metre deep, and a turntable fiddle yard adds another 1.2 metres.

(Fiction): The Glenister Valley Railway was built on the track bed of a standard gauge line in Lincolnshire. The standard gauge was closed in 1958 and later that same year the Earl of Lincolnshire bought the track bed and reconstructed a 2ft 3" narrow gauge gauge line. Running for 19 miles to the small terminus of Glenister, the line is run using second hand stock from Britain and abroad, much of this stock still running in their original companies liveries until such time as new stock can be purchased.
The layout features the terminus, canal and timber yard as in the mid 1960's, and is 8 ft long x 21" wide using two boards.
