New layouts have been revealed for the 2023 Great Electric Train Show including two of the North of England Line Group layouts. The event takes place on October 14/15 at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes.
Joining the 30 strong line-up are 18ft long ‘N’ gauge main line layout Scarlington and Scottish rural byway Kinlochewe in ‘OO’ gauge. Kinlochewe is set in the 1970s and 1980s and features classic Highland traction including Class 24/1 and 26 Bo-Bos as well as Class 37 Co-Co diesels.
Also joining the show is Brian Tamplin’s busy ‘OO’ gauge 1990s Cornish layout St Paddy which models china clay and passenger workings on a multi-level scene inspired by holidays in the area (HM174).
The three new additions join the previous announcements of Pete Waterman’s first assembly of all three Making Tracks layouts as one single 152ft long ‘OO’ gauge super layout (see pages 28-33) as well as stunning ‘N’ gauge layout James Street by Steve Wright, Burntisland 1883 by the East of Scotland 4mm Group (HM190), Ian Woodward’s 1970s era ‘OO’ layout Wardwood (HM189), Greg Marshall’s Gordon’s Lane (HM181) and more.
