The prototype is situated just south of Worcester, where the ex LMS Gloucester to Birmingham line is joined by a chord from Norton Junction on the ex GWR Worcester to Oxford line.
The layout is a trains in the landscape layout and is set in the period 1967 to 1973; end of steam to TOPS period, although we may stray to 1977. Green and blue diesels running on trains representative of the period at this location are featured; and preserved steam could appear! The premise is that the Stratford to Cheltenham line closed when through services finished in 1965 and so the layout at Abbotswood has had to be expanded to accommodate extra trafnc. An up loop with a direct connection to the Worcester chord (this was only ever a kick back siding) has been laid in and the layout has been resignalled to accommodate this prior to the Gloucester MAS scheme. Unfortunately there has recently been a derailment on the Worcester chord so all services are having to run via Bromsgrove, this is until phase 2 of the layout including Norton Junction is built. Trains to watch out for are the Cornishman and the Devonian, but perhaps freight is more interesting with the Waterston to Albion tanks booked for a pair of 37s, the St Blazey to Etruria clays booked for a Western and the Malago Vale to Worcester vans booked for a Warship.
One joy of this location was that you could never be quite sure what might turn up; so a few surprises might also be in store. The line was built at the turn of the century and ran in a south—westerIy di- rection from Glastonbury via the villages of Walton and Pedwell across the peat moor to a junction with the West of England main line at Athelney. In 1911 the South Polden Light Railway was built from Bleakhouse Road across the levels to a number of peak works near Westonzoyland and Burrowbridge.
At the height of production during the 1920s it in turn was fed by several narrow gauge tramways.
In 1937 the Government established an Army stores depot at Burrowbridge, which continued to be rail-served until its closure in 1964. The Army maintained its own motive power at the depot, which occasionally ventured down the Light Railway as far as Bleakhouse Road on transfer trips.
The section south from Bleakhouse Road to Athelney was closed to passengers in 1951 and to freight in 1952. The rest remained open to passenger and freight traflic until the final closure of the S&D in March 1966. The main reason for its survival was the transfer of peat traffic from the light railway to the 'mainline' at Bleakhouse Road, occasional Army traffic from Burrowbridge and sun-dry wagonload traffic for the surrounding agricultural district. The light railway closed at the same time as the S&D, although the narrow gauge tramway feeding the Bleak Moor works survived into the early 1970's, when the peat works itself closed.
The model is set in the period between 1959 and 1964 and features the end-on junction with the light railway and the nearby level crossing at Ham Lane. Locomotives from Templecombe and Highbridge sheds typically shared the passenger and freight workings on the branch to Bleakhouse Road.
Folly Lane  Jason Hannant OO gauge 4mm scaleFolly lane is a modern image layout using stock that could be seen in the period from 1996 to the present day.

Rolling stock is from Bachmann, Heljan, Hornby, and other manufacturers of modern image stock. The layout is fully wired out to DCC standards and is controlled by a Gaugemaster Prodigy Advance system which also provides a sound system. A close examination of the layout will show clues to the date and the location of the area represented, but it is an amalgamation of a number of places and buildings known to the builder, the rolling stock obviously but also look out for the ATM, the Gatso road safety camera, wheely bins as well as the direction signs and road markings. With one small exception all of the buildings are scratch built in card and then painted and Hnished by Graham. The original tall square warehouse with a canal entrance as well as the usual road and rail ones was omit- ted as at over half a metre high, it was impracticable to model so I substituted Burton—on-Trent's Cheese and Corn Warehouse number 2. The canal may look as though the barge would not be able to pass through but I can assure you that before I detailed the arches etc I did check it. The main warehouse has been left open on 2 sides in an attempt to show how goods had to be manually transferred from rail to road vehi- cle and sometimes stored in the building. Most period photographs show these yards as being crammed with wagons and horse drawn road vehicles. I am not sure that this was always the case but I try to match the evidence with as many vehicles as I can. I have supposed that the Metropolitan Railway did actually build the proposed line from Quainton Road to Oxford. The period is set between the Wars when the day excursionists from Bristol and surrounds liked to take the waters of Chew Valley and Blagdon Lakes, whose existence, at this period in time, is also fictitious, also they have been greatly en- larged to take small pleasure steamers. West Harptree is the main village for the lakes having a small pier [not modelled], gift shops and tearooms and is also the focal point for the area's industry having a dairy, Farmers' Association stores, builders merchant and of course the local coal merchant. Hallatrow was the junction for the actual Camerton branch (of Titfield Thunderbolt and Ghost Train fame), which has been retained, but has had a fictitious link line added to the Somerset and Dorset Joint Rail- way at Midford with a south facing junction, at the southern end of the viaduct, which enables through running from that line to West Harptree for both freight and passenger trains. The track is Peco code 80 rail in 3mm Society Ratio sleeper units and the hand built points have been purchased from 3SMR, a 3mm specialist shop. Most of the engines are kit bodies (some much modified for variety) on 3SMR chassis with Branchlines gearbox and motors.
The coaching stock is mostly scratch built with most of the freight stock originating from the 3 mm Society or one of the other 3mm specialist suppliers, of which both operators are proprietors of one - Finney & Smith Kits. Scenery is based on concepts taken from Landscape Modelling by Barry Norman published by Wild Swan. It allowed local residents travel between the towns without need for lengthy inland detours via the Great Western Railway.
It imported coal for merchants and gas works and exported a considerable amount of limestone from quarries in the Gordano Valley.
In financial difficulties from the beginning, 'CoIonel' H F Stephens was appointed General Manager in 1911 but despite returning occasional profits, the fortunes of the line steadily declined and the last train ran on 18 May 1940.

The WC&PR's rolling stock was typically run down, second hand equipment, bought cheaply from other railways, some of which were also run by Col Stephens. The layout is a virtually dead scale representation of the Ashcombe Road terminus in Weston—super-Mare as it was in the mid 1930s before the south side of the line was developed.
With the exception of the station, all buildings remain today and the trackbed is a footpath.
The layout has been featured in Model Railway Journal No 162 and the Railway Modeller February 2007 issue. Westonmouth Central WEBSITE  Adrian Full OO gauge 4mm scaleWestonmouth Central is the third layout that the builder has set in the fictional city of Westonmouth.
Situated on the Bristol Channel coast the city has a large modern dock complex to the north, and a popular holiday beach to the south.
The loco stabling point for the area, Westonmouth Hillside, was the first layout in the sequence (and is now confined to home), Mortimore's Yard is a small set of exchange sidings serving what remains of the city's historic dock industries, whilst the project seen here represents a small part of the city's main passenger station. The layout is set in the mid-1970s, when the distinctive Western Region hydraulics were in decline, and the newer class 50s were making the depot fitters lives a nightmare!
Mark 1 coaches dominate the passenger rakes, whilst parcels trains still feature some pre—nationaIisation vehicles. In the mid-1970s the railways still had a distinct regional atmosphere; it was very much the traditional railway, in this case the Great Western, but with diesels. The buildings of the station reflect that lack of change, although the new Power Signal Box is a rude intrusion on the scene and is a harbinger to things to come. In this way the long platform at the front of the layout is actually a bay platform, and where the viewer stands the main through platforms would lie. Similarly the station pilot loco may be found there between duties or perhaps a defective coach that has been removed from a passing train (or, more likely, a disgraced class 50!). As well as meeting the rules of the competition one aim of the layout is to act as a photographic background, where stock projects can be recorded in a natural setting. The opportunity was also taken to move to finer scale track (C&L) and a first attempt at building a turnout. The layout is controlled by Digital Command Control, using a Lenz Set 90, and Silver decoders.
