Mossmorran TMD - OO British
 

Mossmorran Traction Maintenance Depot is a fictitious layout based on a typical Network Rail TMD from the year 2000 onwards which allows a varied selection of locomotives from varies companies to use it.
 
The layout name comes from the Mossmorran Natural Gas Plant (NGL) in Fife and the TMD is fictitiously located on the upper Southside of the high ground. The unique back-scene which is nearly 14ft long uses about 65 photos stitched together and printed out in 6 individual sections.
 
The TMD has the usual facilities, a twin road loco servicing shed with a pit and jacking facilities, diesel fuel storage tanks, a fuel drop off point, 3 x refuelling bays, a single road wagon/serving shed,  an oil and liquids storage area, scrap parts areas for recycling, some offices and a power control box.

Loch Nagar - OO British
 

Loch Nagar is the Creation of Club member Chris. This layout was built during the lockdown of 2020, and depicts a generic factory setting somewhere within the UK. The layout is designed to run stock from 1940 up to the 1970s. Built in a rifle case the layout measures 3' X 1' including fiddle yard. The layout was created using what ever Chris had in the house at the time and proved to be a great project to help the days pass while not being able to go anywhere. 

 

The layout is operated by way of a Gaugemaster series UF single controller mounted directly to the base board next to a switch panel for the points which are SEEP motors controlled by push to contact switches. This album shows you the layout from start to finish.

Williamson River- HO Canadian 
 

The layout represents a small industrial line, somewhere in British Columbia, Canada. Featuring a small terminus station where Budd Rail Cars take passengers to work. The line has mixed freight services from both Canadian National (CN) and Canadian Pacific (CP). A small fuel terminal receives fuel tankers thanks to its track access. Cut Lumber is delivered to the Timber yard by truck and departs in mixed freight cars. The larger industrial building receives and dispatches multiple box cars.

Williamson River was featured in the October 2020 issue of Continental Modeller.

Thrift Drift - O Gauge British 

 

Thrift Drift mine.

For the impression of a working colliery as at Earlseat Fife, several drift mines feed into central buildings. The “Pug” shed is based on that at Frances colliery which was also located in Fife.

 

A loco propels a pair of empty wagons in for loading and through some clever manoeuvres behind the scenes re-emerge loaded with coal. Typical locos could be a Peckett, Sentinel,Barclay or a diesel such as an 03, 05 or 08 shunter.

The TT (3mm/1ft) narrow gauge loco on the upper level has a plastikard bodied approximation of a battery electric loco on a TT
