Description based on material supplied by the layout owner

Shepton & District MRS N gauge 2mm scale

The town of Midford is situated south of Bath on the Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway, Midford was the point at which the single line was doubled to run southwards. On an impressive viaduct the line crossed the Camerton branch; Western Region line, the road and the stream and the remains of the canal.

This large model was given to the club by the Chester Area Group of the N Gauge Society. It had previously been their exhibition layout and displayed widely in England except for the South West!

This is the Shepton club’s first venture into N gauge, but several of our members model in this scale and in the N Gauge Society.

Currently we are working on scenic details, new trees, building repairs and new backscenes. Work on the track continues and new signals are being made, hopefully these will be working when installed.

The hidden parts of the Western Region section are being partially rebuilt and it is expected to reopen soon it has been test run.

Most of the rolling stock used is from members’ private collections, augmented by some new stock recently purchased by the club.
