A new OO gauge layout, under construction.

A model of  the Medway Valley location, featuring the station built in the 1930s to serve the large paper mill complex beside the line. The intention is to feature the station and the rail connection to the mill, with the possibility of the appearance of some industrial locomotives from the mill's internal system.
To speed construction, it is intended to use the fiddle yard from the Stonefleet layout combined with a new front end.

Progress to date
The baseboards have been constructed and work is continuing on establishing the trackbed prior to commencing track laying.

31-08-2014 - Progress with tracklaying on two of the three scenic boards (the third board can be seen in the background).


26-03-2015
- The new baseboards are complete and have been connected to the existing fiddle-yard. Work on the electrics is continuing.
