Framnock Bay

The concept of the layout was to build it on a minimal budget and to show what can be done with simple components, yet give something visually appealing and interesting to operate.


The fairly unusual shape is that dictated by a spare unused space within our clubrooms, a bay window. When exhibited, the public's viewing position replicates looking through the window from outside.


The layout gives members the opportunity to run their own stock. Based on a time period from the 1940s to the 1960s in an unidentified part of England, the layout has conventional DC control with all the trackwork being Peco Code 100.

It portrays a small suburban station served by a light but frequent passenger service and has a small but busy goods yard. There is also a connection to a nearby industrial area with sidings, to which there is a regular flow of freight traffic.


The layout measures 9ft 11in long by 2ft 1in deep with an integral fiddle yard towards the rear.


More pictures of the layout can be found here.
