Blue is the Colour
Blue is the Colour is an N gauge layout which represents the West Coast Mainline above Preston. It is set in the mid 1980’s when British Rail Corporate Blue still held sway in the livery of stock.
The layout comprises a junction station with a non electrified branch line. This is complemented by a woodyard and brewery on the bank of the river.
00-9 gauge layout set in 1920s Mid Wales.
Cwm Hir (Long Valley) is a tiny halt on a narrow gauge railway somewhere in the middle of Wales. It serves a number of local isolated farms and houses in the area, which can be accessed by the lane which crosses the railway here.
The layout represents a slice of a railway which runs from a local market town, where it meets the standard gauge’s local branch, through a few miles of countryside and a number of small villages, before reaching the slate quarries it was originally built for.
This model is of a fictitious 18″ gauge line. The railway is shared between a sand company and a preservation society, with sand trains still running the entire length of the railway, but the preservation society’s passenger trains terminate at Derwent Road.
Hogsmead on Sodor
This layout is the SRC’s favourite as far as the kids are concerned! A mixture of “Thomas” and “Harry Potter” themes make this an ideal attraction for the youngsters at a model railway exhibition.
It is operated by the children themselves – so there’s always plenty of custom!
Redwick Halt is a small club project layout which was built by new members to the club who wanted to develop existing skills or learn new skills. It was built largely over 6 weeks, 3 hours on Saturday mornings.
