Woodcroft in EM

Whilst this layout was damaged during  vandalism at our 2019 Stamford Show, repair work is now complete as is the new extension pictured below.

 Woodcroft

Originally built by David Smith a former chairman of the club.

Woodcroft is a small through station on an imaginary single-track line built to give access to Stamford from the Great Northern main line. It's main purpose was to allow for through running of coaches from King's Cross via Peteborough to Stamford.

The station has a single platform and a run round loop for goods trains. A small brickyard in the vicinity (so typical of the area) with sidings gives much useful goods traffic. For this exhibition, the layout is operated in the GNR or LNER period.

This layout has been purchased by the club and has been re-wired during 2014.

Canons Cross

Canons Cross

The layout was originally built for BRM to show that a model railway is within the capabilities of anyone who has carried out DIY and those with skills at the beginners stage. All items were bought off the shelf from the local model shop and builders merchants. Some buildings are made from simple card kits that are pre-cut and very easily assembled.
Woodwork for the base boards is simple and has no complicated joints. Some builders merchants will part cut some of the plywood. Electrics are simple and sturdy requiring little soldering. Rolling stock is all ready to run. A series of articles regarding it's construction appeared in the magazine British Railway Modelling (Jan-Apr 2010 issues).It appeared at the BRM sponsored exhibitions in Doncaster, London and Peterborough in 2010 and 2011 and is still a popular layout available for exhibition.
The layout is based on the Southern Region of BR in the 1950/60s and operates with Steam,diesel and EMU's. It is a small terminus to a fiddle yard layout. The layout is approximately 20'x 2' in size plus an operating area and requires 3-4 operators to run and 2 cars to transport. One 5 amp power supply via an RCD is required to run the layout.

Brunthill

Brunthill Station

An N Gauge layout, Brunthill is a small country town in the Yorkshire Dales, whose station and line connect to the London Midland region to the west,and ultimately the North Eastern region to the east.It is the early 1960s with both the last knockings of steam and the new diesel era.

 The town's claims to fame are its pretty Lilliput Lane houses and buildings, and its creamery, making the world famous BRUNTHILL CHEESE, which is said to be running a close second in sales to Camembert in France!

Local stopping trains are augmented by the occasional non-stopper heading to main line connections. The main freight operation, as well as sheep and cattle movements,is the delivery of milk to the creamery, including a milk wagon drop off from the local passenger train. The Club's main contributors to building the layout have also bought or are renting shops and buildings that provide a range of services as displayed on the back drop panel!

Brunthill was built to demonstrate the outstanding buildings available to N Gauge modellers from Lilliput Lane who in addition to their normal selection of high quality buildings  introduced a range specifically aimed at N Gauge modellers under the banner of Full Steam Ahead. Sadly, production stopped in 2017.

The micro minx point motors were found not to be robust enough for the exhibition circuit and have been replaced with standard Peco solenoid point motors. The layout is currently undergoing further work to improve on scenics and operability.
