The basis of this layout was an old baseboard built by Ray Fothergill. It was intended for an "N" gauge layout, but that never got built. After he passed away it was given to me and naturally at the time it became a 009 layout named "Fotherbridge". This restricted track layout was lifted in 2014 and recently (2015) became a riverside scene that it is now "Ellerbank". It features a river side station and goods yard, leading over a crudely-bridged stream and past a piece of woodland, with children playing and animals and birds hopping about. It has a small fiddle-yard added with a sector plate. Layout has now been sold-on.

Jims first layout built in 009 scale. It has been a two year process so far learning new techniques along the way, but the layout is now nearing completetion. The scene is a rural setting with station and siding serving the local community.

A victorian water works scene built by Chris. Working furnaces and beam engine are animated features, while outside on the tracks the operation takes the form of a shunting puzzle moving wagons and equipment to the appropriate positions. The layout was built specifically for the 2016 ExpoNG Challenge competition.

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.
Knights Yard is the headquarters of a narrow gauge railway serving a nearby nursery. The layout is an attempt to build a large scale model in an extremely small space - 3 feet x 18 inches. It feature a workshop, water tank, store, loading platform, packing shed and refuelling point, all scratch built with card and household materials and using battery powered locomotives.
