Trent Lane Junction is the club’s latest big project now making progress. This is a model of the ex-Great Northern Railway junctions in east Nottingham and set during the 1950s-60s. As well as the ex-GNR lines, it will also feature the ertswhile Nottingham Suburban line and the surviving former Midland Railway route to Newark and Lincoln. Although still under construction, three of the baseboards were at the March 2007 Nottingham East Midlands Model Railway Exhibition, as part of a major feature to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Great Northern Railway arriving in the City of Nottingham and the opening of its lines into London Road Low Level, as depicted in the model.
The Former Midland Route to Newark – The latest developments on the layout are with scenery, buildings and infrastructure. A DMU passes by the Sports Ground, near to Colwick Crossing, on its way to Newark. Colwick Road can just be seen in the background – now what about all those lovely green, Nottingham City Transport, Brush, three-axle, trolleybuses on Service 44.
The lower level of the fiddle yard will serve trains on the former Midland Railway route from Nottingham Midland to Newark and Lincoln. The upper level will accommodate trains on the ex-Great Northern lines from Nottingham Victoria to Colwick and Grantham, whilst the high-level triangular junction serves the Nottingham Suburban Line.
