Oake (OO Finescale) Kilve (OO Gauge)
Oake is a fictitious layout based around the Somerset village of the same name. It is assumed that Oake is a two platform station with associated yard on the Taunton to Barnstaple line, about half way between Norton Fitzwarren junction and Milverton. Follow the title link for further details and photographs. Somerset is somewhere you would probably never think of if you mentioned an Oil Rush. In fact the words Somerset and Rush very rarely share the same sentence. But it did happen. Early in the 20th century deposits of shale on the Somerset coast between Kilve and Watchet were examined for oil. This fictitious layout shows the impact of the Oil Rush on the sleepy Somerset village of Kilve.Follow the title link for further details and photographs.

Little Branch (OO Gauge)
Little Branch is the product of the youth section of the club. Fiddle yard to terminus construction but in recent weeks has grown considerably in size and might be due for a name change!

Construction in progress

Kitchener's Yard (N Gauge)
Designed to operate without a fiddle yard but to contain a large hump shunting yard as the main feature of interest. Progress is slow as track laying and scenic detailing only occurs after the bacon and sausage baps have been prepared!

Construction in progress
