      The Bridge at Remagen is an N-Gauge World War Two era layout centred on a true scale model of famous Ludendorff Bridge that spanned the Rhine close to the town of Remagen.
       
      The layout has a predominately military theme depicting the Rhine bridge as it was in September 1944. Chronology this sitting between Operation Market Garden and the Battle of the Bulge, and at the point where the bridges defences were being strengthen in the face of the imminent threat of the advancing Allied Armies.
       
      The bridge and the immediate boards are a true scale representation of the actual bridge and surroundings using photos, maps and authentic reconnaissance photos of the bridge.
       
      The layout is inspired by the 1969 Film of the same name and as a tribute to the Classic War movies of the same era and includes several movie cameos hidden amounts the scenery.
       
      The layout has featured in British Railway Modelling – June 2019 & Continental Modeller – February & March 2020.

    • The layout is OO gauge (1:76) and measures 67cm by 19cm. It was designed for two reasons: To have enough operational potential (I like to shunt wagons a lot) and small enough to fit into my bedroom. The layout doesn't have name yet, hence the title. It doesn't have a specific location: It can be rearranged to different periods. But when I'm running it at home, I normally use BR steam rolling stock. 
       
      Construction
      Work started on the layout in December 2020. It is entirely made up from by cardboard: for example, the backscene is made up of sections of cereal boxes. The baseboard is half a cardboard slab cut from the fiddle yard of McKellar Yard: They were salvaged from an Ikea delivery. The track is Hornby and is glued onto the board which was then painted grey. Currently, the track is awaiting ballasting. I designed the layout in a way so that the fiddle yard can be separated from the main section when it is in transit.

    • Bostcroft

      By LNERandBR, in 4mm scale,

      Bostcroft is an Eastern Region branch line terminus set in the late 1950’s. I started building Bostcroft around 2003 and it’s first appeared at the 2009 Boston Exhibition.
       

      (Photograph by Paul Bason/BRM)

      The layout is completely fictional. To build it I made use of many Metcalfe card kits and some Ready to Plant buildings from Bachmann and Hornby. The track is all Peco Code 100. The greenery is Woodland Scenic’s. The ploughed field is made from real mud collected from the garden. It was first sieved before being crushed and glued down with PVA glue mixed with water. The base of the field is corrugated cardboard.
      Rolling Stock is ready to run from Hornby and Bachmann. When I first finished the layout there were very few Eastern Region locomotives available to modern standards apart from the large pacific’s. Therefore I purchased a range of London Midland locomotives to run the layout with. Now Hornby and Bachmann have started to turn out more Eastern Region prototypes. Therefore as new locos are released I am slowly phasing out the LMR locomotives.
      The layout is operated using the Lenz LH100 DCC system. Digital Command and Control means that a locomotive can be parked anywhere on the layout without worries about isolating it from other locomotives. The other main advantage of DCC is sound. Many of Bostcroft’s loco fleet are fitted with sound decoders from South West Digital and Howes.

    • Scratchy Bottom

      By MarcD, in 7mm scale,

      LB&SCR/LSWR Modular layout can be run in a number of configurations from 16ft long including one fiddle yard and 3 scenic boards to 30ft long including 6 scenic boards and 2 fiddle yards. Built in fine scale standards the layout represent a rural joint branch line in the the period 1900-1910 some where in the south of England. In addition to the main branch line there is a an industrial line that runs into the goods yard. This leads to a paper mill which is off scene. The stock is mainly kit built with some ready to run locos.
      The layout needs a minimum of two operators in its 16ft configuration but as the length increases the number of operators goes up 4.   
       






    • Southgate Park

      By Markmiller2008, in 4mm scale,

      Southgate Park is situated on the South Western section of the Southern region and is somewhere in the vicinity of Kew Bridge/Brentford, after Old Kew Junction. With a bit of 'alternative history' and a couple of strategically placed junctions, Southgate Park is served by local services from Waterloo, which terminate in the bay and semi-fasts from Waterloo, Basingstoke/Guildford and Salisbury. These form the core services, utilizing a variety of inner suburban EPB's, outer Suburban VEPS, CIG's, HAPS and CEP's and loco hauled for the Salisbury services. Occasional peak hour services from Paddington and Reading are possible by way of a link from the Great western mainline to the North London line at Acton, and a further link with the Brentford branch to the west of Brentford. These are usually formed of DMU's with the occasional loco hauled service to Newbury or Oxford.
