Doncaster is a modern image OO gauge model railway created by Peter Mitchell based on the East Coast main line in Yorkshire.
The layout, built on MDF with a hardwood frame is located in a purpose built room and is approximately 30' x 20' in size.
Prominent features of the layout include a major station based on Doncaster, DMU re-fuelling/stabling sidings and a freight yard.
A mixture of Bachmann, Lima and Hornby trains run on the layout, including GNER-liveried HSTs, Virgin-liveried Class 220 Voyager units and a fleet of Class 47s.
We highly recommend visiting Peter’s website, it features many more high quality photographs and information on both the construction and the inspiration behind the layout.
Exeter Road Junction is a 50's based layout created by Jake Tudge. At the moment the layout is still being developed and Jake provides detailed information and photographs about this process on his website.
The layout is built on an 8' x 4' board and comprises of two loops of track, a number of sidings and a turntable, all providing plenty of interest for the operator. The inner loop is controlled by DCC while the outer loop is controlled by conventional DC, Jake is currently converting all his locomotives to DCC.
Jake's locomotive fleet includes an assortment of Bachmann and Hornby trains and he provides reviews for two Hornby Steam Locomotives (including a BR Westcountry Class 'Combe Martin 34043') on his site.
We recommend visiting the Exeter Road Junction website and feel that it will be of particular interest to anyone interested in finding more about the early stages of building a model railway layout.
