This was the first exhibition for 009 layout "Ellerbank", a riverside scene with passenger station, goods yard and wooded area.
Seen here is a Sharp Stewart tram loco and bogie carriage arriving at the platform, and below, the same train later leaving and running over the stream.
"Knight's Yard", a super detailed small industrial yard in 1:16 scale. Here a petro-mechanical locomotive waits in the loco servicing siding near the hoist.
And below, a steam loco shunts a van into the packing shed.
Our third layout being displayed was "Ashfield Green", a 009 scale layout. Shown here is a modified Gem Vari-kit locomotive about to leave the passenger platform, also seen below from the opposite direction.
