I opened this article to discuss our clubs Exhibition layout and to find your opinions and to seek your advice on Entering the strange world of Exhibiting.
Here are some photos of the Layout in its current state.

The Plan is for the Annual Bradford MRC exhibition in May, Following that we are being arranged to appear at an exhibition at the Middleton railway in July.
Sorry forgot to mention
The exhibitions are in 2007.
QUOTE A layout built and operated entirely by a group of students from Immanuel College in Bradford using their own rolling stock. The layout depicts a small suburban station in Liverpool, where the ends of two branch lines meet. Goods trains can be seen around the station, loading, unloading and being re-shunted by the resident shunting engine to carry on their journey down the other branch or on their return journeys. Regular suburban passenger trains can also be seen operating on both branches being handled by a variety of small steam engines, diesels and multiple units. A narrow gauge railway operates just outside the station taking passengers on a ride around the terraces and through the public park delivering house coal to the houses along its route.
And there is our Exhibition text describing the railway.
For Pictures of the layout under construction go onto our website at
I have no more recent pictures as we are restrained by school hours hence we cannot make any further progress as it stands.
Next update on the 3rd of January!
Been looking at your pics , looks like a nice neat job! Looking forward to seeing more . Keep up the good work
