Work on the O gauge layout has been suspended until members have settled into their new home. All members are working on a new 00 gauge layout

A 00 gauge layout based on the area around the Sheffield and the South pennines is also under construction. This layout consists of a double track continuous loop and a high level single track continuous loop. The high level track has been converted to digital control. The layout features a through station, a goods yard, locomotive shed, factory sidings and a canal basin. The layout has been exhibited at our shows as a work in progress. There is still a long way to go. before it it is finished.

Due to our impending transfer to the Train Shed this layout has been scrapped.

Invercalley is another Scottish themed layout also built by David Harrison


The inspiration for Invercalley came from Ian Futers’ book Scottish Layout Projects and is based on the plans for Inverary.

The Callander & Oban Railway Company proposed a branch line from Dalmally, through the glens to Inverary. This railway did not transpire, but I decided to use the idea and construct a scene based on what might have happened had the railway been built.

The track plan for the station is based on Ian’s plan with the addition of run round loops and a coal siding has also been added.  To add further operational interest a small engine shed has been included and is loosely based on Ian’s plan of Kyle of Lochalsh shed, which is in the same publication. A lochside siding has also been incorporated and this is based on a real life location on the shores of Loch Awe.

Invercalley was featured in the July & August 2017 editions of Railway Modeller magazine



The layout is set in the early to mid 1960’s and the rolling stock consists mainly of Black 5’s and Class 26’s and 27’s. The passenger trains are those which might have been seen in the location with through trains from Glasgow and a shuttle to and from Dalmally. Freight stock is general goods plus fish and oil traffic

The buildings in the town scene have been modelled on actual buildings located in Inverary. The station building was inspired by the architecture of Dalmally station.
