Featured in July 2003 Railway Modeller. Offered for sale at this exhibition.

The layout was built as an entry into the 2003 small layout competition staged by the D&E societies at their annual meeting in Burton-on-Trent and Carlton Metals was selected as the winner.

The layout is based in the Nottingham area and features a metal scrap works dealing with the disposal of worn-out railway stock, with the occasional locomotive being deposited before being scrapped.

Trackwork was built using SMP fine scale with the exception of the central diamond crossing which is Peco.

A comprehensive 5-page article about the layout was featured in the July 2003 Railway Modeller.
