The junction station provides connections from the busy main line to local towns, freight access to a nearby steelworks and excursion trains to the local preserved railway.
Kirkby-in-Furness: Set around 1900-1920 in north Cumbria the layout in 'OO' Finescale sees trains from the Furness Railway, the Midland Railway and the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway prior to all being absorbed into the LMS in 1923.
Mettesford: A 'N' gauge layout based on Matlock, Derbyshire on the Midland Railway's main line through the Peak District. The time period is 1945-65, which allows for the running of LMS and BR steam together with early and green diesels.
