Box Station

Swansea Railway Modellers - Exhibition Layout

Box Station is Swansea Railway Modellers Group flagship 2mm scale N Gauge exhibition layout. This will its debut outside of Swansea and so we are very pleased to be hosting this superb layout.

 

The original Box Station was on the main Great Western Railway main line between London and Bristol and was opened for traffic when the Chippenham to Bath section came into service in June 1841. The station remained in use until January 1965. The layout runs from Middle Hill tunnel in the east to the first bridge to the west of the station and it will feature rolling stock from the early 1900s up until its closure in 1965.

The Swansea Group has amased vast amount of information and illustrated resources to assist in the development of the layout. Members of the Project have also visited what remains of Box Station site to collect data on the landscape of the area and gather samples of the local limestone used in the construction of the buildings. The layout made its first public debut in September 2019 at the Swansea Model Railway Exhibition and was met with a very positive response. Since then work has been carried out to make further improvements. For more information click HERE.
