N gauge : Upper Cwmtwych. A very welcome return of Les Nehrlich with his compact layout depicting a small depot for emergency servicing and refuelling of modern diesel locomotives.

N gauge : Wulstanton Road. Terry Tasker from Southport Model Railway Club with a small commuter terminus station serving a large metropolis.

N gauge : Maryport. An 8ft x 4ft layout by Solrail's own William Moon inspired by childhood memories of train watching around Netherton.

Maryport in OO gauge

HO gauge : Franklin Falls NH. Talented local modeller Ray O'Neill shows his latest creation, a North American branch line layout based in rural New Hampshire. Featuring sound equipped, heritage diesel power, it is sure to be very entertaining.

Franklin Falls

OO gauge : Cockermouth Covid 19. Andrew Holland built his layout during the first lockdown drawing on bits and pieces recovered from previous layouts, and selected items from around the home. We like recycling!

Multiple scales : Bits and Bobs. A wide selection of card based models demonstrated by Rod Moore.

OO gauge : South Galleons. A long awaited and much anticipated return of Solrail's Ian Blenkinsopp with his superbly detailed compact industrial layout. Ian is the master of showing just what can be achieved in a small space with imagination.

South Galleons

OO gauge : Ellasweet Beet Factory. Graham Morfoot reurns to the exhibition with another of his superb compact layouts that has featured in the model railway press. A representation of a sugar beet factory in East Anglia around 1960. With an eclectic mix of industrial steam and diesel locomotives linking the factory to the local British Railways network. Graham depicts wagon loads of limestone, coal, materials and sugar beet (modelled in a very innovative way). Check out World of Railways

4mm finescale: Port Solway. Newcastle Model Railway club exhibiting their portrayal of what might have been if the North Eastern Railway had united with the Maryport and Carlisle Railway early in the 20th Century. 4mm finescale is similar to what we know as OO gauge but is built nearer to scale dimensions. It will be the biggest layout on show this year.
