Romiley Methodist Railway Modellers

Gillan and Brown

Welcome to Gillan and Brown, engineers to the world - in miniature!

The club layout depicts part of the extensive internal railway of G&B, bringing in raw materials and taking away finished products and waste. There are over 70 separate demountable loads. Which of them appears, and hence the wagons utilised, is determined by a randomised card system. And then there is the loose coal required to power this industrial complex.
