Pizza Layouts

Members were invited to enter a Society only competition to build a Pizza type layout which were exhibited at ExpoNG 2007. Pizza layouts are basically a small round track based around a scene. These are great to show an individual scenic modeling skills and although operationally they lack everything it does give time to have a good natter with the public at a show!  The competition was judged remotely by Carl Arendt, publisher of the Micro and small layouts for model railroads website.

Booking our layouts for your exhibition

We enjoy taking our layouts to exhibitions and consequently they are booked sometimes years in advance. Narrow gauge railways always add a little something different to normal railway exhibitions and the public always appreciate them.

There are many more layouts owned by members that are not listed here for many reasons, if you invite the Society to exhibit at an exhibition we will always ensure that we are able to display at least one of the members layout.

We have not published a list of when and where each layout will be exhibited as the layouts are owned by individuals and not the Society so we do not have up to date info about each layout or its availability. If you wish to invite one of our layouts to your exhibition then please send details using our contact page and the owner of the layout will get in contact with you.
