Large multigauge test track

The club currently runs the large test track pictured every third week for members own OO and O gauge stock.

It consists of two inner OO gauge tracks, then two O gauge tracks, then one dual gauge O/OO track, then finally another O gauge track on the outside.

It allows members to run some very long trains, that usually will not fit on their own layouts.
It is not uncommon for trains of up to 30 wagons or 8 coaches and above to be seen.

It was originally built around 8 years ago, and is still going strong.
Visitors can sometimes also be allowed to run their own locos or trains if the layout has some spare capacity, providing they get permission from one of the committee.
Test track night is always the most popular evening in our calendar.
This test track is portable and available for other model  shows if required.
It will be appearing at the Great Central Railway’s large model show in June 2016 at Quorn.
