The Woodside Layout
The Woodside model was commissioned from the Merseyside MRS by the Wirral Museum, where it held pride of place from its completion in 2001 to the closure of the Wirral Museum. It is a static model of the Woodside terminus of the LNWR/GWR joint railway and the adjacent ferry terminal to Liverpool and dry dock as they were in 1934. It was researched and built over a ten year period by a team from the Merseyside Model Railway Society and was the subject of articles in British Railway Backtrack and Railway Modeller in 2001. The model can still be viewed and the MMRS and the Council are making sure that it is in good condition.
