Description based on material supplied by the layout owner
Oakley is an imaginary location set in Shropshire in the valley of the East Onny river. It is served by branch lines from Craven Arms (LMS) and Montgomery (GWR), hence trains from both companies. The stock is proprietary, some of which has been modified or detailed to suit the 1930s period. The buildings are mainly scratch-built or substantially modified kits.
The layout is controlled from a central console with mimic diagram, route setting and interlocked operating signals. The operating programme is far more intensive than a small terminus would have in reality. The intention is to keep both the public and the operators interested by always keeping the trains moving.
