Loxley Barton Falls was my entry to the Cubic Challenge at the 2005 Expo Narrow Gauge (ExpoNG) exhibition where you had to conceive, design, build and operate a narrow gauge layout that the dimensions of were no larger than a 500mm cube. I chose to build Pittock and Sons warehouse at Loxley Barton Falls complete with tidal lock and sailing barge delivering goods. The layout is a simple 1 point with two sidings and a loop that goes off the scene out the back, allowing me to change rolling stock during operations. The layout won the competition and plunged me into Narrow Gauge modelling!
