Model Railway Club
Layout Manager: Chris Round, Deputy Dave Jeanes
This ‘00’ gauge layout represents a small fictitious Great Western terminus in the period 1934/35. As well
as the connection to the main line between Barry and Bridgend there is also a branch line to the nearby
Power Station (not actually built until 1960!). The layout is operational, the ballasting has been completed
and a number of ‘cassettes’ for the fiddle yard have been built. A number of kit built locomotives were
donated to the Club a few years ago and these will form the backbone of the motive power on the layout.
Presently the back scene is being strengthened to aid transportation before constructing a lighting unit.

station branch line disappearing between the

seen in the background.
