Description based on material supplied by the layout owner

Shirehampton MRC N gauge 2mm scale

Brimscombe station is located on the cross country line between Gloucester and Swindon. The Cotswold town is deep in the Frome river valley to the east of Stroud.

The layout includes the station area and part of the long climb up the valley out of the village towards Chalford and Sapperton Bank.

Our model railway is 24 feet long by 3 feet wide, track work is Peco code 55 finescale on the viewing side and code 80 in the fiddle yard. Electrical control in conventional DC cab control but can be switched to DCC operation if we wish. Most of the buildings have been scratch built.

Trains can operate using a timetable, for one of the highlights look out for the heavy freight trains on the long climb out of Brimscombe towards St Marys crossing.
