The Layouts Page

A motley collection of old, current and new projects (eventually). Some of the layouts featured here are, or will be, available for exhibition. Exhibition managers please feel free to contact us using the email addresses at the bottom of the relevant page; we'll be happy to get back to you.

As with all the pages on this 'site, you can click on the pictures to move on.

A view of the On30 scale layout 'Gunsite'
A quick foray into On30 with stock from Broadway and Bachmann, all quite seriously modified. More of Dave's handiwork...


A view of the HO scale layout 'Selbstgefällig'
Dave's DCC test track/demo layout. Operated variously as DR, DRG or NS (or whatever I can sneak in to play!). We'll have to make sure that the layout 'name police' don't get him for that one...

Colton Junction and Ontario Street

A view of the HO scale layout 'Colton Junction'
Dave built Colton Junction ten years or so ago as a scene in California. It has become a bit of a standard for the whole group with various layouts in different outlines, gauges and scales spinning off from this, the original design. Thankfully the layout lives on with Chris, it's new owner, who's moved the location to Canada.

Alte Strasse

Stock for Alte Strasse
A modern Austrian oultine layout featuring a cement works. I've started putting together some of the structures and detailing the stock (some of which is shown in the photograph above). It's being developed using some of the standards towards the finer end of the HO spectrum which I'm hoping will give more consistent running and improved appearance. And it explains the odd couple of Austrian loco detailing pages starting to feature on this 'site!

Lokwerkstatt Zittau-Pethau

An overview of the layout under construction
A real layout of a real place! An operating diorama of a small East German (DR) shed and workshop in HO. Loads of waffle, the theory and practise of modelling from a prototype. And some very ropey philosophy. After some consideration we decided that the baseboards were too heavy for this particular layout so we've stopped working on it for the moment. Be sure the layout is still firmly in my mind but it'll need some new baseboards made specifically for it. This is a project I shall return to after I've finished playing with Alte Strasse, the new layout featured above.
