Marshside is an O gauge layout that represents a fictitious branch terminus serving a small town on the southern shore of the Ribble estuary in Lancashire. The line is assumed to have been constructed by the West Lancashire Railway, which, in real life, ran between Preston and Southport, and was taken over by the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway in 1897.

The intention is to generally run the layout in the 1930s LMS period, or occasionally the BR 1960s period.


The layout is currently under construction, so there are various buildings that are not built as yet, and also a lot of detail scenery still to go onto the layout.
