"Roundy"

The section has worked long and hard to achieve the holy grail of the O gauge world - continuous running!

Former end-to-end exhibition layout Kirkby Grandfield was converted to a permanent fixture, and a continuous loop added, affectionately nicknamed the 'roundy' (see picture top right). Then more recently, we sold the layout but kept the extension!
