Description: Northwick is an exhibition layout that is based on a might-have-been, seaside town on the Bristol Channel between Weston-Super-Mare and Highbridge. It is assumed to originally be the terminus of a secondary mainline of the Somerset & Dorset Railway and so the infrastructure is based upon LMS practice. The line was, however, later linked to Yeovil junction and the Great Western mainline between Bristol and Exeter. As the layout depicts a summer weekend between 1952-1957, a wide range of services emanating from the Western, Midland and Southern regions will be seen as well as occasional pick-up goods trains and eastern region excursions. Although services are predominantly steam hauled, a few early diesels appropriate to the location can be seen.
