Mulldale is a 7mm (1:43) scale industrial scene incorporating 16.5mm track (2 6” narrow gauge) set somewhere in Northern England in the late 50’s early 60’s.

The railway serves to move raw materials/goods around the Mulldale Castings & Engineering Co. and other small businesses set betwixt a canal and high-level main line viaduct.

This layout, with the exception of ancillary vehicles, is kit/scratch built with no prototypical references.

New N Gauge Layout
This yet to be named N Gauge layout is the society's latest 9mm gauge project, started in late 2012. The design was shaped by the reuse of existing baseboards recycled from a previous N Gauge layout that failed to reach fruition. A simple track design was chosen incorporating two independent loops converging at a central main station with multiple platforms...

A new OO gauge layout is being built in order to give new and existing members the experience of model railway design and construction, and to provide a new project for the Club.
The layout has two levels.  The upper level would represent the steam age and the lower level would represent the modern age. It will support both DC and DCC.
