This 8ft portable layout has been given to the club by the family of a deceased member. It has a station and large goods facilities and has now been re-assembled and tested by members.
A donation of locomotives and rolling stock enables members who just want to sit down and operate it at their leisure can do so.
This is a double track N gauge layout built on a four foot by three foot board.
All track is laid and tested. Scenic work has now commenced
CUTLERS JUNCTION - 00 GAUGE DC & DCC
The old club 00 gauge "Glasgow" layout is now being remodelled into a 8ft x 20ft layout renamed "Cutlers Junction" after the farm where we are situated.
The layout includes a very large fiddle yard at the rear with the station complex and locomotive facilities at the front. With all trackwork/wiring completed scenic work is a continual process.
These are some of the current layouts that are at the Club. There is a mixture of Club layouts, group layouts and private members layouts.
BLACKHEATH - 0 GAUGE DC, DCC & RC
The 0 gauge branch line starts at the small station and goods yard at one end of the clubroom and continues along the length of the building above Cutlers Junction fiddle yard.
At the other end of the building the line turns 90 degrees into a run around/terminus. Here there is now a goods yard and engine shed. With the last of the electrics completed, senic work has started but there is still plenty to do!!
THE QUARRY - 00 GAUGE DCC
Linked to Cutler's Junction is ‘The Quarry’ a 12ft by 5ft extension (a layout in its own right) which has been kindly donated by Alwyn, one of our members.
All wiring has been tested and it allows members to run stock in DCC. Modifications are going to be made to enable the option of running in DC (Ananlogue) as an alternative to Cutlers Junction.
CHIPPENHAM - N GAUGE - DCC
Work has now well underway on the Chippenham N Gauge layout.
All the track has been laid and tested. Control is by DCC and all the points are operated by Megapoints Controllers.
This 20ft layout is a representation of Chippernham Station and will include the major buildings (all scratch built by various members of the Club) and scenic features around the station.
THE CHERRY TREE LINE - G GAUGE - DC & RC
Currently under construction is our G gauge line. This allows members to enjoy the countryside while ‘playing trains’, nothing better on a nice summers days along with a cup of tea and a biscuit!
Inspired by images of the old Huntley and Palmers biscuit factory in Reading, this portable layout (designed to be operable in various configurations) depicts part of the railway yard of another biscuit company ‘Dunkin & Dippin’ Ltd. It will include many industrial buildings and plenty of shunting!
The ‘Autumn Project’ board completed by members of the club (under the tutorage of Perter P), trying theirs hands on many new aspects of building a model layout that they had not done before is now finished and is up for sale with proceeds going to club funds.
Ready for completion by the purchaser. It includes the baseboard and track only. The track has been ballasted and the wiring complete and ready to run DC or DCC. Size 5ft x 3ft 6ins.
