A Really Useful Railway – 00 Gauge

A Really Useful railway is a simple 8ft x 4ft layout built by one of our members to engage with younger modellers and model rail enthusiasts to help spark their imagination. The layout is designed to be operated by children and older as a ‘have a go layout’. Inspired by the original Thomas the tank engine TV series in the 1980’s, those viewing the layout will see a range of Thomas the Tank characters as well other examples of steam and diesel traction.

The layout is currently operated by analogue control, but there is a wish to convert it to full DCC operation in the future.
