St Luke’s 30th Model Railway Railway Train Show 2016. Highlights include Hornby O Gauge, Marklin, Lego Trains, Hornby Dublo, N Scale and HOe scale scenic layouts. Railway layouts in this video include.
Steve’s Follie exhibited by Steve Thompson.
An HOe scenic layout featuring narrow gauge trains and Kato Unitrack system. Layout is double sided using great model miniature detailing.
Defty exhibited by St Luke’s Railway Modellers
This large dog bone shaped layout is the clubs modular OO/HO gauge railway. It allows members to run long trains that may not fit on smaller home layouts. Defty is dressed with plastic and card scenic pieces, nothing is locked down. The track on this layout is especially joined so the Hornby Live Steam train can run without voltage loss. This year Defty was a mecca for hand of God shots that I’m semi famous for at train shows.
Legeauxland exhibited by Richie Dulin
This multi leveled and interactive Lego train and Lego monorail display is rebuilt differently every year. Within a very small footprint there is an amazing universe of Lego minifigures and expert Lego building. The motorized theme park rides are activated by children watching the exhibit. Legeauxland is a showcase of the incredible potential of Lego a as toy or investment.
Mosquito Hill exhibited by Daniel Thompson
This N scale hyer detailed model railway exhibit shows off how awesome a tiny scale can be when the layout is designed for maximum adventure. Within a small area there is a feeling of depth and huge heights. The detailing on the logging train just seals the deal. Never think that small N scale can’t impress.
Classic Hornby O Gauge exhibited by Christopher Wilson.
This vintage Hornby railway is an awesome trip back in time. This is when model railways were large scale and made of metal. There is a classic Meccano crane as a feature piece. The best part was a custom Thomas The Tank. It looks like the large ERTL die-cast attached to a Hornby set of wheels. Now I want that!
Greenwood Hornby Dublo
Meccano introduced its OO scale trains in 1938 under the name ‘Hornby Dublo’. The locomotives were diecast metal, and the carriages and wagons were generally made of tinplate. This was a very well planned range of electric and clockwork models, successfully consolidating 12 V DC as the standard for OO scale. This led to the adoption of OO as a broadly accepted modelling standard in the UK, whereas much of the rest of the world adopted HO scale. As for their O gauge locomotives, electric Hornby Dublo locomotives ran on a third rail electric system with the track built on a pressed tinplate base.
Industry Lane exhibited by Gary Ruming
Extreme detail plank styled DCC controlled shunting layout. To understand all about this exhibit it’s best to follow this link on the Platform 1 MRC forum.
Glockenberg exhibited by Ian Williamson
A classic HO scale German layout using Marklin rolling stock and automatic controls to start and stop the trains. It even has hidden away on a building a scary clown.
Watermans Cove exhibited by Hamish Fergus
This double layered N Scale layout depicts a holiday wonderland somewhere in middle America. There is a working cable car and multiple tracks throughout the layout.
Penguin’s Halt exhibited by St Luke’s Railway Modellers
This U-Drive layout features the Lionel giraffes cars and a Penguin theme. Children at the train show can drive this layout for free.
Branxton exhibited by North shore Model Railway Club
A work in progress for teenage boys to build up a highly detailed model railway.
Kidzpower Railway exhibited by North shore Model Railway Club
A multi layered HO/OO layout that has two zones of play. The lower level is there so children can easily see the model trains. This exhibit changes all the time and it’s a work in progress. My son spent a ton of time playing with the trains there.
