Bromhall is an extension of Sparkford. Extra boards have been built along the sides to increase the dimensions to 12ft square. As with Sparkford, the layout depicts the railway at a small-to-medium sized town on a secondary main line. However, additions to the layout include an engine shed, a canal interchange and a small quarry complex with a narrow gauge interchange.

The station still consists of three platforms and a bay, normally used for parcels traffic, and retains the nearby stabling point for the station pilot and for the layover of other locomotives. All rolling stock is provided by club members and comprises mainly proprietary items but with some kit-built models. The operating day is generally split into two sessions each covering a different period of the railway era in Britain.

The layout is 12' x 12' in size. Essentially it is a double track oval with scenery on three sides. Trackwork is Peco Streamline (Code 100 Rail) with point control by electric motors. Three controllers supply the power independently to the two main lines and the goods yard but with limited switching to allow movement through certain sections of track to be carried out by either of the main controllers.
