Member's Layouts


Below are links to details of layouts built, operated and sometimes exhibited by ARA members.


Dunkow Road   N Gauge



The layout is loosely based on the SR/WR region lines of BR in the late 1960‘s / early 70’s. As such operation can be steam, diesel or mixed, with the diesel only option being the preferred choice.

Now owned and maintained by Paul Whittaker

Astbury Junction  N Gauge


The 1950’s early BR layout is set in a busy Northern town in the London Midland region. It is inspired by the lines of the former Cheshire Lines Committee, so motive power (all steam) is a mix of ex-LNER, LMS and BR Standards, with an occasional WR long-distance visitor.

The layout is loft-based and not transportable.

Trelissick (GWR Branch Line) O Gauge



If any of you have been to Cornwall you may have come across the Trelissick estate, located in Feock on the banks of Carrick Roads, the estuary for the River Fal. In our world here is the history of Trelissick.
