Knot Littlefield is a fictitious layout inspired by 'somewhere in Staffordshire' where the erstwhile industrial urban areas met the suburbs and countryside. The track layout comprises inner and outer circuits at different levels with cross-overs and reversing loops, reminiscent of the Staffordshire Knot.
Stations and sidings at different heights enable local stopping trains to be passed by through express passenger and goods trains. The era for the layout is 2000 with British Railways liveried diesel locomotives hauling trains, and DMUs. However, the emphasis is on entertaining exhibition visitors rather than “rivet counters” and so a liberal approach to visiting trains from different regions and eras is not ruled out, including heritage steam hauled. A section of the Layout has a real running water stream through the holiday village.
