The Museum of Transport is a layout with constant movement and activity with many exciting features to entertain all ages and all interests. We do not operate to timetables or real time schedules and the layout is running constantly to entertain. Wherever you look, something is happening!

Timber Valley

Timber Valley is totally ficitious set somewhere in the valleys of Yorkshire, the local community work at the local sawmill, the small branch line heads off into the hills and adjoing valley, the main station takes passengers to meet the main line.

Illie Town

Illie Town is a little layout based in the Midlands. Passenger services are served by London Midland, Chiltern and East Midlands Trains. On the freight side of things, there's a warehouse which imports steel and a ballest siding, which both are served by all sorts of locos from different companies. there's a two road depot with a separate fuelling point.

Dunkow Road

Dunkow Road

Dunkow Road is an N Gauge layout loosely based on the SR/WR region lines of BR in the late 1960's / early 70's.
Here the twice daily milks are being loaded ably assisted by a class 22. One wonders how much longer this service & the loco will survive. The effects of Beeching & the road lobby are being felt everywhere in the local area.

Melinau’r Abaty

The layout depicts part of a fictional mid-Wales narrow gauge railway primarily transporting slate products and passengers. Whilst the arrangement itself is conjecture, almost all of the landscape, buildings, practices and rolling stock depict scenes from real railways and locations as they were in the 1930’s.

The layout depicts an imaginary ex Cambrian Railways branch line originally built in the late 1800’s for the movement of both passengers and goods. The original use of the branch was for the movement of both lead from the mines and stone from the various quarries in the area. Other goods movements on the line includes gunpowder vans for the mines and quarries as well as farm machinery, coal and general merchandise.
Passenger traffic consists of local trains to the nearby town of Oswestry and connection to the main Cambrian line.
