Les Sims is one of the Club members in the '0' Gauge section; his layout is now withdrawn from the local exhibition circuit after over 20 years on display .
Mill Street Goods is a small goods complex, situated in the West Midlands on the borders of the Midland and Western Regions of British Railways during the mid 1950 to 1960s period. The location is typical of the West Midlands urban scenery with compact yard space and traditional looking buildings. Traffic consists of unfitted and fitted goods workings plus special consists. Small shunting locomotives are very much in evidence, handling the majority of the four-wheeled, loose-unfitted wagon traffic.
Being a relatively small yard, often having long periods of time between arrivals and departures, there is time for much shunting. Steam in its final years, and the new diesels, may be seen operating the yard. The occasional visiting diesel type, which could be considered uncommon to the area, appears perhaps on test or working a short turn prior to returning to their usual operating base.
The layout is '0' gauge, 7mm Finescale with dimensions of 19ft x 3ft.
