The Layout will be run on DC. It is hopeful that Sykes Lane will be available for the Show at the end of May 2020.
Originally built by Ian Pickworth, his wife Maureen kindly donated the layout to the club on Ian's passing.
It is our aim to restore the layout to it's original glory and have it ready for exhibition at this years show in May.
Below are some photos of the layout as it was when originally built by Ian.
