This is a double track continuous run layout designed to allow intensive movement at exhibitions.


We have tried to keep the period and location as vague as possible to allow the use of a wide range of stock, thus at various times there will be steam operation, Corporate BR diesel/electric traction, or post-privatisation TOC stock.

Although generally run as a DC layout, Stonefleet has the capability to be run as a DCC (or even Zero-One) layout, depending on the availability of suitable stock.

Leaving town a footpath takes us over the river, adjacent to which the local scout group have a camp in a wooded area and are engaged in trying to start a campfire, so that they can cook lunch.
