An N gauge layout set in Staffordshire by Brian Kennaby.

Leekbrook Junction

Description:The layout is based on the Churnet Valley Railway in Staffordshire. The Churnet Valley Railway actually operates from Cheddleton Station to Kingsley and Froghall Station, with a stop at Consall Station. On the return jpurney the train goes through to Leekbrook Junction. Passengers are unable to board or detrain at Leekbrook Junction as it was one of Dr. Beeching's casualties in the sixties.

The Black Lion Pub, which can be found a short walk from Consall Station. A caravan site which is not far from Cheddleton Station, an Industrial area which you will find at Kingsley and Froghall with lime kilns, and a wooded area with a nature reserve.
