Layouts Confirmed to date (December 2018)
- Central Works O Gauge, Exhibited by Luton Model Railway Club, The location is based on the intense network of sidings that once existed at Longbridge, Birmingham. This enables us to run a great variety of locos and stock from the late 1950s through to the 1960s.
- Grange West Tramway O-16.5 Gauge, Exhibited by John Dean, The layout is a fictitious narrow gauge system situated in the middle of England. It is modelled in O-16.5 (7mm) and depicts Beldam Road Station on a non tramway section.
- Canute Road Quay, OO Gauge, Exhibited by Graham ‘Muz’ Muspratt, Canute Road Quay is a dock / quayside layout located somewhere around the Canute Road area within Southampton Docks operated primarily by the Southern Railway between 1946 and 1949. Occasionally it can be operated in different eras such as early or late British Railways periods.
- Ealing Road, OO Gauge, Exhibited by Missenden Modellers, Built for the Channel 5 TV series 'The Great Model Railway Challenge', the theme of the heat was ‘Movies’ and the team opted to base theirs on a medley of the Ealing Studios films of the early fifties.
