Melbury is a circular 'N' gauge layout on three levels. It has been constructed with the object of finding what gradients loco's are capable of climbing whilst negotiating tight curves. It is possible to run up to 5 trains on separate tracks and the ability to change both tracks and direction is available by the use of two reversing loops. There is also a small goods yard at one end. As this is a club layout there is no specific era or location as this enables any member to run their stock but most stock is in the 40's to 60's era. All track and points are Peco and the points are operated with SEEP motors. The control panel is fully illuminated with LED's and a maximum of 5 hand controllers can be in use simultaneously.
