It’s the 1950’s and the railways are beginning to modernise.  At Broadwater Junction the station has been wiped away and the track layout has been simplified.  The old pre-grouping signal box has been replaced with a new BR design.  The only remnant of the area’s history is the wharf rotting in the mud.  Once a point of transhipment for the branch’s products, its lack of road access and position on a tidal inlet has always limited it but once the track from the station was cut people just walked away, abandoning the wharf and an old crane.

As the signal box has been made in modular form, other signal boxes can be placed to give a further enhancement to the layout, ie: running train themes can be organised if requested by exhibition organisers due to the various stock holdings by the club and its members.

It's first show was at Leamington in 2011 and it has been seen at various shows since then
