Back in 1978 it was mentioned by Alan Garside during the first AGM that the club should model Ramsbottom Station and surrounding area’s. The first thing the members of the club decided was to get an idea of what the layout and area was like. They decided to model Ramsbottom Station to scale with all features of the past and all track work on the O.S Map, this was possible upto a certain point for example there were 50 sidings in Ramsbottom sidings which they decided they would have 9 which with the new extension we now have 15, This gives us more space to store stock ready for the program and other shunting needs.
The layout is a giant oval or as other people call it a tail chaser, this makes it a lot easier for running rather than having an end to end. The up line starts in the fiddle yard, heads out of Nuttall Tunnel, past Nuttall Park where you have access into Ramsbottom goods shed, then into Ramsbottom Station, from there it heads towards Stubbins on a embankment that goes up in height, along this embankment you have access to the coal sidings and loops, from there it can either head up towards Rawtenstall or towards Accrington which either way head back into the fiddle yard for another run around. The down line starts in the fiddle yard, heads past Stubbins Station from either Accrington line or Rawtenstall line and heads off down the embankment when you have access to the loops and the joining from Ramsbottom Sidings, after that the line heads into Ramsbottom Station, just after the station you have access to Ramsbottom Station Goods yard complete with paper mill sidings, after that it heads past Nuttall park, through Nuttall Tunnel and into the fiddle yards where there is a point to go into the Accrington or main line parts.
Left to Right :- Shows a view looking down Bridge Street towards Ramsbottom Station and a birds eye view of Ramsbottom Cricket Club. All of the buildings on the layout have been scratch built from pictures, photographs, books, ariel views, new maps, old maps and memory.
The layout has 5 Gauge Master Controllers that powers 2 front boards, 2 back boards and 1 board for the sidings. Each house, mill and building on the layout included street lights are powered by AC and DC 12v lights.
The layout includes the following Streets :- Bridge Street, Garden Street, Peel Brow, Kenyon Street, Railway Street and Bolton Road North. Basically, the Scale of a Model refers to the size of the Model in comparison to the real item that it models. Apart from the obvious size characteristics, Scale also implies other things, such as manufacturing limitations, realism and also has practical implications.
Introduced by Marlin in the early 1970’s, this was the smallest commercially available scale for many years.


Even today, Marklin remains the only major company making a complete range of Z-scale products, though at least one other manufacturer makes the trains and several make scenic accessories. The rails of the track are spaced 9mm apart, the real rails being spaced the same as for Z-scale. Arguably the most common model railway scale in the world, HO Scale remains one of the most important commercial scales and is very popular in most countries.
Note that the real-world equivalent spacing of the rails varies with scale, but then so did train tracks vary with place and era. The minimum turn radius of 24″ (610mm) corresponds to a startling 14m scaled, although it is acknowledged at a lot of rolling stock modelling longer items will not handle the minimum radius.
A Number on Specialized Scales have been adopted by modellers seeking prototypical dimensions.
Realism here refers to how closely a Scale resembles the real-world operational characteristics. Keep in mind that limits are not firm; as the turn gets tighter and tighter, more and more rolling stock becomes unable to negotiate the turn, or the length of train that can make the turn gets shorter and shorter.
These are just some of the issues when we truly start to consider prototypical layout design and operations, and we will discuss this further in another article. This was agreed by all the members present at that time and this set the ball in motion to create the layout. Apart from most members living in Ramsbottom, They also used old O.S maps borrowed from Ramsbottom library and making a larger plan on paper to put onto the base boards. Members were able to aquire these items from libraries, Heritage Centre’s, Pubs, The East Lancashire Railway and more.
The 2 back boards and the sidings boards have their points controlled by a live probe method. The mechanics to it as so delicate that if the gears slips you sometimes find you have one gate not shut and thats when accidents happen.


But due to the confined space some areas have had to be squeezed up together to make it possible to run. This is the equivalent of having a real-world, full-size track that turns with a radius of 54m, when scaled up. This is the equivalent of having a real-world, full-size track that turns with a radius of 33m, when scaled up.
Tighter turns would require a more acute angle between the axes of subsequent coaches, and buffers or coupling mechanics reach the end of their travel. The gauge they had decided was to be 00 gauge as it seemed a reasonable size scale and one that was generally most common at the time. Most of the building were built by Alan Garside and members from the past but lately with the new extension, Alan Garside has been making the Mills and Keith Cragg has been making the houses. The 2 front boards have a different arrangement for their points, these are controlled by toggle switches with confirm buttons. We have had a few accidents with a few replacement gates being needed as a train vs a level crossing gate is no match. These all use grain of wheat bulbs with the older type needing 100 Ohm resisters where are the newer type already have them built in. All the buildings you see in our pictures are all made from a type of wood called Balsa wood which in turn is covered with brick, stone and slate paper added to create effect and realism. We also have working signals that  will activate when points are changed with signal lights adding to the effect. Each set of lamps has a transformer to a section these are 230v-12v types and in some areas under the layout are clipper controllers used for there outputs.

    Lumber, urethane and white train hobbyist, like Dick Sheats of Ligonier, has expanded his lines.

    Prototype full-size railways such as the Canadian Pacific Christmas been happier with my buy.
