One of the best-known Diesel & Electric era layouts on the current exhibition circuit, Mostyn has moved 'P4' standards into more general awareness. Offering a large true-to-life layout that runs frequent, prototypically-correct formations at realistic line speeds (click here for details of Mostynís Coach formations); Mostyn has proved very popular with the visiting public at exhibitions.

Amongst the stock introduced at recent exhibitions, Mostyn now boasts a large Fleet of DMU vehicles, an ever increasing number of parcels vehicles, a CWR wagon train (minus rails), LMS- and GWR-design brake vans, Mostyn Dock Shunter no.2 and a 12t Van train that's slowly increasing in size at each show. The class 40 fleet has of course expanded to cope with this increased traffic; 40182 and the celebrity green machine 40106 were introduced to traffic at the 2008 Trainwest Exhibition at Melksham. (Further details of the Mostyn Class 40s can be found in issue 115 of Rail Express magazine).

Although stock building was slowed over the first six months of 2009 whilst Mostyn's extension was progressed (see the result of 'Phase 1' as shown at Perth in June 2009 here), output soon ramped back up and amongst the goodies we had for you at Wigan 2009 were some of Colin Craig's excellent freightliner flats, along with expansion of the DMU fleet in the shape of BRCW class 104s.

There are still about three or four years of locomotive and rolling stock-building to go whilst subtle scenic improvements continue.
