This layout depicts the entrance to the fictitious Watt's Mine (Yawzes site).
Above the River Yaw lies an area of low cliffs and deep gullies known to the locals as the "Yawzes". Mine owner James Watt discovered rare earths in exploitable quantities in the area and set up a mining operation to extrcat ore. The layout is built to a scale of 1:24 running on 16.5mm track to represent 15" gauge, the gauge/scale combination is known as "Gn15".
This layout was inspired by the Derbyshire hills and villages and fits on to a table top. It was built for local shows specially to show what can be acheived scenically in 009 scale in a 1mt x .75mt space
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.
A 2 ft diameter 009 scale "pizza" layout by C Seago of a milling area and small passenger station. The windmill and steam mill have animated features.
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.
An engineering works on the fictitious Ruritantian Railways modelled by J. Corsi in O-16.5 scale.
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.
Barrys Gn15 layout has many features. A through station area with loading point in the cider stores, a cider press, bar area, with the cider press below on a lower level with staff rest room, an artists studio and a spooky ghost.
