A class 37 carries out shunting duties on Andrew Bartletts Olshaw layout.

Oldshaw is a small EM gauge model railway built by Andrew Bartlett from Stroud, near Gloucester.

The layout depicts a small station and nearby factory and sidings on a Western Region branch line in the late 1970's or early 1980's.

The passenger service is usually provided by a diesel multiple unit, and blue diesels are in charge of the freight trains.

The scenic part of the layout is eight feet in length by eighteen inches wide. Storage sidings in the form of a traverser at one end takes the overall length to twelve feet.

It is also possible to attach another set of storage sidings at the other end of the layout thus creating a through station.
