ARA Club Layouts


Below are links to detail pages on layouts built and operated by the different groups within the Association.


Hassell Harbour Bridge      0 Gauge

Lawton Hey      00 Gauge

Lawton Hey is a small market town.

Its fictional location is such that it benefits from multi-regional railway connections, and even now, in the 1960s, facilities have been upgraded to accommodate diesel locomotives as they gain a foothold over steam.

Newcastle by the Water      N Gauge
Newcastle by the Water comprises a four track line which has dedicated passenger and freight lines. The large railway station is the junction for a single line branch.
The locomotives and stock run on the layout represent the modern era on a typical English mainline. (24ft x 4ft)


Fredstone Lane      N Gauge

The layout consists of 6 4x4ft boards which will be packed into pairs for transportation. It incorporates a double track main line & a freight avoiding line complete with loops to allow diverted stock to pass.
