The club is lucky enough to have a good variety of club member's layouts, many of which are available for exhibition. Below is a selection of those available - for more details contact the club secretary.

Waalhaven - H0

 

“Waalhaven” depicts a Strukton Rail depot (the Dutch division of Nederlandse Spoorwegen responsible for all of the rail infrastructure), based in the Rotterdam Europort where much of the materiel required is brought in by barge to nearby wharves.

 

The layout measures 72” x 15”, giving a 45” scenic area and 27” fiddle area.

 

There are three sidings at Waalhaven, the rear siding serves as a storage shed where dry materials are brought in by wagons and then distributed on works trains to wherever they are needed on the NS network. Also adjacent to the shed is a small container handling crane to load and unload containers and portacabins. The front two roads are used to handle spoil wagons and ballast hoppers.

 

There are six locos available for use on the layout. There are three ex Nederlandse Spoorwegen (NS) class 6400 MaK diesel locos in the liveries of RAILION and RailPro and an ex NS 600 class (similar to the UK 08 class) in RailPro livery. There are also an NS 2200 class in the heritage Brown livery (this loco was affectionately known as the brown bear) and finally a Vossloh G1206 loco in the yellow livery of Strukton Rail.

Kenekimura - N Gauge

 

Kenekimura is an exercise in micro layouts, with the total board measuring 3'9" by 1’8”. It is set in central Japan, and based on the Iida line, which operates through the Japanese alps. The Iida line was famous for its cement works, which provided freight traffic until the mid 1990s, and the fact it used a variety of old style multiple units up to the early 1980s.

The layout is set in the late 70s/early 80s and features a wayside station serving a small village. The village also hosts a cement works, which provides a small but regular traffic flow; both the outgoing cement and incoming coal (for use in the cement manufacturing process). The other constituent parts for the cement arrive by road.

 

Passenger services are handled by a variety of overhead electric units representing the types of train seen on the line throughout this period, starting with the variety of older sets, moving on to the class 119 units which started to take over operations in the early 80s, right through to the JR central 313 and JR East 115 units which started in the 80s.

Freight services are inn the hands of the older ED19 locos, which were withdrawn in the 70s and the ED62, which lasted until the end of freight .

Buroklammer - H0

Buroklammer takes its name from the track design; the paperclip. This design allows for a longer running length in a more limited space.

 

Set in a rural area in southern Germany/Austria, the layout can portray operations from the 1970s through to the present day with minimal change.

 

Control is through DCC, with provision for automatic train operation.
