The station is based on a combination of those at Loch Tay and Killin, utilising the original station boards from the Breadalbane layout. Only the original station area has been retained and this has been refurbished in such a way so as not to detract from the original model. Glen Dochart @ Falkirk 2013 Glen Dochart @ Falkirk 2013

To increase the operation of the layout an industrial scene has been added next to the approach to the station. It depicts a distillery complex to be worked in conjunction with the existing goods yard and allow a wider and more varied selection of rolling stock to be used.
