This is one of two “O” gauge layouts, the other being “Much Firkin”.

It is a large oval layout consisting of 22 base boards each measuring 4 feet by 2 foot 8 inches. This will produce a continuous running layout 36 feet by 16 feet.  The layout although fictitious is based on Southern practise in the early 1960s. It does however allow running rights for any regional visitors particularly GWR and LMS .    


Shown for the first time at our exhibition in 2013 and in 2016 and will be shown at our 2024 exhibition.
