      Based in  the North West of the  Czech Republic, Zlata Vŷchòd is a fictional border crossing between Germany and the Czech Rep, so has a fair mix of stock both Czech and German, as well as private operators.
      Layout is 22x11ft “tailchaser” type layout
      Modles are a mix of DCC and DCC Sound
      Requires 5 operators to run, with the layout being transported by a Van.
      You can also find all out layouts on Facebook, On our group page ERTMS ( European Rail Transport Modelling Solutions)

    • Lancaster Lane is a DCC shunting layout based in 1960's Southern England. Operation consists of a variety of 0-6-0 and 0-4-0 locomotives shunting local freight of coal, aggregate and cattle. The layout is portable and can be transported and assembled by myself.
      The layout is 4.7ft by 1ft and is operated from the front. Only requirements are 1 electrical socket as I'll use extension leads. Based in South East England.
      Built in lockdown of 2020/21 the layout has yet to feature at any exhibitions or publications.

    • Elbow Lane represents a lost corner of South London. It has two very short platforms, one of which is in a bad state of repair and no longer suitable for passengers. It also manages to accommodate a loading dock and a tiny fuelling point come loco spur. All built on a pair of Tim Horn laser cut baseboard kits.
      I have used Peco 00 Bullhead track with the points being operated by Servos.
      Control is by an NCE DCC system which makes the most of the all the sound fitted locos.
      For couplings I settled early on on the ‘Brian Kirby’ mod the Bachmann couplings to allow for hands free magnetic operation. Suitable Neodymium magnets are used that have enough pull to work from the underside of the baseboard but not too strong to attract steel axles. This allows magnets to be added, removed re-sited.
      Elbow Lane itself measures 7' 6" x 12" including the 2' 6" open style fiddleyard and requires a total footprint of 5' x 9' and is usually operated from in front of the fiddleyard at the right hand end. It is free standing and has its own lighting. Track level is 1.1m from the floor so should be considered as a high level layout.
      Elbow lane lives near Gatwick.

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 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. 
      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.
