Soarston has been under construction since March 2014. As the name suggests it is
based loosely around the Soar Valley and the Grand Union canal. It depicts a former
industrial port for the boats to transport Gypsum from the factory at the far end.
All this traffic is now taken from the recently built loading bay between the road
and the sidings.
The only boat traffic now is delivering aggregates to the builders distribution yard.
Pleasure boats are beginning to take over now.
We are hoping to have the layout ready for exhibiting in the autumn of 2016.
