  • Oldshaw was built by Andrew Bartlett.  Details and photos of the layout as built and exhibited by Andrew can be found on the EM Gauge 70s website.

    The layout depicts a small station and nearby factory and sidings on a Western Region branch line in the mid-late 1980s. Guy, Mike and Tom got the layout in late 2017 and in 2019 we built a pair of new fiddle yards in 2019 (followed by a new lighting gantry) to allow the layout to be operated with through running for the first time.

    Looking towards the station before the second fiddle yard had been built to open up the track under the bridge at the far end:
