Large Scale

John Gartner is the Layout Coordinator

We use 45mm [1 scale] and 32mm [0 scale] as track gauges. 45mm is used for anything from 1 gauge 1/32 scale, European standard gauge. 1/29 scale, USA standard gauge. 1/24, 3ft-6ins gauge or 1/20, 3ft gauge. LGB is some where between 1/22 and 1/24 or 1/25. It can also be used as 1/12 dolls house size 2ft gauge. 32mm is usually used as 1/18 2ft gauge.

We have one layout on a set of boards, this is for indoor use at our Exhibitions.

Our outdoor track is used on most running days, where electric [both track supply and battery] and steam locomotives can be run. This out door track has a dedicated set up area.

During the cooler months, as part of our Branch’s activities programme, we conduct a Sunday running day. Steam locomotives must have an in-date boiler certificate to participate.

By prior arrangement we can assist with boiler testing and certification.
