Cant Steadings Junction – OO Gauge

Cant Steadings Junction is our newest layout and also the smallest using just the one board. Our junior members played a considerable role in it’s construction and it gives a good impression and example of what can be easily achieved at home, for example.

The layout was donated to the club a couple of years ago as just track on a board and we decided it would be ideal for introducing to our junior members – namely wee Keagan aged around eight – how to build a layout. He put a considerable amount of work into it with the excellent teaching from our sadly missed late Chairman Davy Cant.

Davy was one of the founding members of our club fifty years ago and was absolutely dedicated to our club and the hobby. Following his unfortunate passing last April it was felt appropriate to name the layout ‘Cant Steadings Junction’ in his memory.

The layout earlier in 2021 with scenery work very much under way.

Over the festive period of 2021 this layout was on display in the Mercat Shopping Centre in Kirkcaldy, and it had a lot of detail added to it by the club working together to bring it up to standard for this wee display. The display was supported by both Gatehouse Property Management Ltd (owners of the Mercat) and our friends at the excellent Scoonie Hobbies in Kirkcaldy who supplied a “Christmas Express” train to operate on it.
