Welcome to the
Modern Traction Groupís layout
Banks Road

The MMRS Modern Traction Groups layout is 'OO' gauge and is based on a fictitious small terminus station called 'Banks road' (named after the group member, Ron Banks, who sadly passed away).....It was built on baseboards that were used in previous club layouts and the group salvaged as much as they could from the old layout that they were building in our old (larger) clubhouse.
 
The layout runs British modern traction: This includes diesels from the Green days right up to the latest EWS/ DRS etc traction. DMU's may also be found alongside the freight.

The layout is run end to end and includes a DMU maintenance area, a Traction Maintenance Depot, a number of sidings/carriage/wagons and a cement works.


The layout is fully controlled by DCC. The track has also changed from Peco Code 100 to code 75. Electrofrog turnouts are being used to maximise smooth running.
 
There are only a few members in the group so if anybody wishes to contribute or just come down and run some (DCC) stock, they are most welcome!
