Since Newchapel Junction Model Railway made its first appearance back in 1991, we have always been looking for ways to improve and extend the layout and, as a result, many improvements have been made over the years. We are now embarking on the biggest and most complex project to date, namely a complete renewal of the main station together with provision of full signalling and a new push button route setting control panel. Click on the following links for more information and photos of this exciting new project:
