Southport Model Railway Society held their annual exhibition over the weekend of 28th and 29th September, and while the layouts on display were mostly railways, a couple featured 4mm scale working tramways. The Ellenbrook 4mm model tramway came from Liverpool, and was a freelance layout featuring trams from various systems. The other layout that featured a model tramway was the impressive 4mm EM gauge layout of Liverpool Lime Street Station and its approaches, the layout measuring 44 feet in length. The Lime Street Station layout featured a working tramway running along Lime Street in front of the station. This layout appears to be a work in progress, as the scenery has not yet been completed along Lime Street and at present there is no tramway overhead.
