The railway itself models a set of engineers sidings, set primarily in the 1985-95 period, primarily focused on the Dutch engineers scheme, but with other guests from the Satlink department, as well as various speedlink rolling stock, to add some interest to the rolling stock.

Class 08, 33, 37, 47 are the main source of motive power, with more to be added in the near future. The various wagons would be ‘dumped’ by the engineers and S&T departments, to be picked up at a future date, and works in a Inglenook style. The layout is still in construction, with the hope of exhibiting the layout for the first time in late 2024-early 2025.”
