    OO gauge – Coppell – 31’ x 11’ – Furness Model Railway Club – The layout represents the West Coast Main Line passing through the fictitious town of Coppell (Lancs). If the name sounds familiar, it’s because the layout is set just south of Coppull, between Preston and Wigan. We’ve just industrialized the area somewhat!
    OO gauge – NEW - Brewery Sidings – 4’ x 1’ – Ray O’Neill – a minimum space layout built on a small budget, based around a fictitious location somewhere in south Cumbria, around Ulverston.
    OO gauge – NEW – Six Quarters – 7’ x 1’6” – Oliver Turner – based on LOWCA. It’s Autumnal Cumbria and if you had any sense you would be at home in the warm watching the TV. But it is ten years since steam on BR has ended and unfortunately you cannot shake the desire to see hard working steam locomotives, and the National Coal Board is one of the last users of steam engines in the British Isles…
    EM gauge – NEW –Winter Croft Mill – 5’7” x 2’ – Andrew Wright – Winter Croft Mill makes bleach, dye and other products for use in the textile industry. Chemicals and fuel come in using a variety of wagon types whilst finished products are transported out mainly in vans and sheeted open wagons.
