Coal Hill West: Chris Berry (N) A compact 2mm/ft layout that could be based on anywhere in the UK.

Hollym Gate: Brian Sunman (00) A might have been station on the former Hull to Withernsea line.

Mill Lane: Dave Holmes (0-16.5) Set in the 1940s to 1950s, a might have been line that would have connected into the proposed North holderness Light Railway near Beverley.

Moorton Bottom Yard: Paul Windle (009) The layout is based on the cramped little goods yards that were once a common feature of urban railways, it is set in the mid 1930's with traffic from various warehouses in the area. A wagon lift is a feature of the layout to allow wagons to reach the warehouses at street level.

Pen-Y-Madoc: Steve Farrow (EM) A great Western Branch set in North Wales in the 1930s

Shifting Sands: Colin Peake (09) A day trip to the seaside and a visit to the Somerthorpe Miniature Railway.

The Cliff Railway: Geoff Beecroft (TT) A 'funicular' railway, that as its title suggests, runs up and down a Cliff. Such 'railways' being quite a common feature of East Coasts Resorts.

West Wood Park: Hull MRS (0) The layout represents an area in Derbyshire during the mid 50s and early 60s with a through station that is used as the fiddle yard with the main line running over a three level viaduct, allowing rail, road and river to cross at the same point.

Plus our 'hands on' children's' layouts so that children both young and old can have a go at operating model railway layouts. Also for the very young our range of Brio railway for them to play with.

We are again providing step stools that can be borrowed (against a returnable deposit), so that children can better see the model railway layouts that are at the Show.
