ON30 American - Four Feather Falls

 "ON30" Gauge layout 7mm:ft  The Award Winning “Four Feather Falls

Our ON30 layout, Four Feather Falls is in-fact two layouts, The upper part being a logging line,
The lower line servicing the mine at the right hand side. A Large fiddle yard behind the back scene allows a variety of stock to be seen. 

Four Feather Falls

Located in a mountainous area, a feature of the layout is a gorge where the Feather River gushes under three bridges. 
The upper is of A Frame construction, the middle is a Truss Frame and the lower is a massive Trestle. 
All bridges in this neck of the woods, would have been of timber construction as plentiful supplies of the raw materials were available. 
All bridges were Scratch Built by one of the layout constructors, and by unanimous vote of the Club members were named the “Melville Bridges.

The layout represents a small town somewhere in the USA, in one of the states close to the Canadian Border. The layout features a double track mainline and a station which supports a county passenger service of a few Amtrak trains, along with one or two Steam hauled specials. The mainstay of the line, as in most of the US is freight, with trains hauling coal and lumber to cars and mixed freight. The layout also features a stretch of street running to a factory which can still be found in US cities. Running stock is mixed including most of the US rail road's along with Canadian National.Scenic detail is paramount (Movie fans - check out one of the mountain peaks on the back scene) on this layout, check out the alley ways and have a look through some of the windows of the town buildings. The layout name comes from one of our members name. This layout is still being worked on, still more to come.

OO British Layout - Dunnichen Steam Shed (Retired from Exhibition)

Layout is now retired

"OO" Gauge  Layout 4mm:ft “Dunnichen Steam Shed”

Steam motive power depots were around from the earliest days and have developed from the 1860’s. Today they are all long gone but we show a typical steam shed of the late 1950’s—early 60’s based on nowhere in particular but Dundee Tay Bridge was our guide. We are able to show our collection of steam locomotives in an environment where you would see most of them gathered. From the main line, locomotives enter the shed area where the fireboxes were cleared of ash, replenished with coal and water repairs carried out and cleaned to await their next turn of duty.

This layout is no longer available for exhibition.
