Club Layouts

Rotary Hills
N Gauge


Set between two hills, a small country station and goods yard are at the junction of two lines. At an upper level you will be able to view trains passing across a bridge in the distance. Whilst at the low level, trains will emerge for hillside tunnels and merging with the upper level line and onto the single platform station. The sighting of the hills and junction between lines has made it nessercerry to shunt goods through the platform from a parallel siding that at times also serves as a through line for the upper level. Look out for the story of life in the village, the church and in the hills

Formally a layout built by the Club to be won at our Annul Exhibition. The original owner and winer some 30 years later has returned the layout to club. Formally an all manually operated point-work from the front, it is now being modified and updated for Exhibition work.

Rotary Hills is one of many N Gauge layouts in development, If you are interested in N Gauge and would like to become involved in these other projects as they develop, please clink the link here to email us --> N Gauge group and one of the team will get back to you.
