Birtley Model Engineers will be holding their annual exhibition at our home in the Birtley Community Centre.
These will include a small railway that is available to be operated by children and any one else who wants to! Please note that only Light Refreshments will be available, and not cooked meals as in previous years. What are we about?I know there are many women or maybe men who follow their partners around the country attending shows, going to events and preserved railways but my main issue has always been getting to a town or city looking for that elusive model shop and not being able to find it. Featuring both real and model film clips of Oxenhope, Grassington and Victoria Rd (Saltaire) (55min).
A Micro shunting layout built by architectural modeller Bob Dawson as a demonstration of his modelling talants. Acton Parkway is an imaginary through station based on the West Coast Mainline south west of Manchester. Control of both locomotives and points is DCC using the Lenz system some of the locos are sound. The stock is a mixture of the major suppliers of ready built rolling stock and most items have been weathered. To fit the Seaton plan needed to be compressed as the real thing could accommodate long holiday trains but the main platform can still take a three coach branch train plus a T9. The buildings are from the Bachmann 'Shillingstone' range and add nicely to the SR country feel. Track is Peco Code 75 for speed of construction, and although committed DCC enthusiasts, Axmouth is DC.
Based on the Inverness and Aberdeen Railway branch which reached the village of Burghead in 1862. The North Yorkshire Moors Railway is regarded as one of the country`s premier heritage railways, and Goathland is its most recognisable station, thanks to the filming of Heartbeat (Aidensfield), Harry Potter (Hogsmeade) and Simply Red's music video (Holding back the years).
Check out the well-known characters from the TV series - you'll see Claude Greengrass in trouble yet again with the police. The trains are operated prototypically, with those approaching from Whitby and Grosmont working hard up the 1:49 gradient and appearing under the three-arch bridge at Darnholme.
Frequently heard words during design and construction were 'compromise' and 'make it smaller'. A fictional town, somewhere in the East Midlands, on the border of British Railways Eastern and London Midland operating regions.
Freightliner, Direct Rail Services and Colas Rail all having regular workings through New Bryford. North Hetton Colliery closed in 1935 but I have assumed that it re-opened during the Second World War and stayed open until the 1950’s.
The model, more a working diorama, is purely fictitious and incorporates many features and buildings that were typical of the area. I hope that this layout shows that it is possible to have a large scale layout, with all its advantages, in a very small space. Republic Steel' and represents the massive steelworks in Cleveland that stretched along the 'Cuyahoga Flats' on Lake Erie.
The locomotives and rolling stock are from the major manufacturers (Bachmann, Hornby and Heljan), Classes 03 – 60 while the odd DMU can also be seen.


All the scenery and buildings are all off the shelf items from Bachmann, Hornby, Metcalfe Models and Woodland Scenics. The fiddle yard can hold approximately twelve trains so there is plenty of variety to keep your interest. Keiths Model Railways  0116 2778634 A Good selection of second hand and some new items. A display of 2mm scale modelling by members of the Pennine area group of the 2mm scale association. The Preston and District Model Railway Society is holding its next exhibition in March 2013. Growing ever more popular this event features examples of the best in railway modelling with exhibits drawn from far and wide.

Lagganmoor is a fictitious location in Monarch-of-The-Glen country envisaged to be on a double track section of what was the Highland Railway south of Aviemore where together with The Great North of Scotland Railway a mutual venture during pre-grouping era created a repair depot for the use of both companies.
This remained by courtesy of the local Laird so long as a rail link to his distillery existed alongside a platform for the local residents and visiting gentry to arrive for ‘The Glorious Twelfth’. The buildings are predominately Graham Farish with the distillery utilised from the Oak Hill Brewery Range, the malt house roofs were ideal for the purpose.
Locomotives and rolling stock are a mixture of Graham Farish, Dapol and Peco stock straight out of the box.
The magnificent backscene (I’m sure you will agree) was painted by an award winning artist using acrylic paints.
It’s a new station with car parking for commuters and shoppers who journey to Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham. The overhead wire is not operational and is constructed by soldering piano wire lengths together and super-glued to the Dapol masts. Although BR-Blue modellers, an SR liveried Hornby M7 was purchased so a layout was needed to run it on. We both have an interest in SR EMU's so Axmouth has been given 3rd rail but just into the bay - this is part of an SR test for rural electrification.
Freight traffic comprises of fish traffic, coal, oil, timber, fertiliser traffic for the factory and materials for the North Sea oil explorations, which were just starting. It was immediately evident that a great deal of space was needed, but as the only room available for construction was 12ft by 8ft, this set the maximum size possible. But even with these constraints, we hope that we have provided you with an acceptable representation of the station.
The setting is the mid 1960's, BR's modernisation era, when steam was being phased out to be replaced by diesel traction. It has been extensively refurbished including a new, deeper backscene and conversion to Digital Command Control (DCC) operation via a Lenz 100 system.


Passenger traffic is varied from humble Northern Rail DMU’s to Voyagers on Anglo-Scottish duty and the occasional Pendolino drag diverted from the West Coast main line.
The layouts main feature is a day and night sequence which makes viewing the interiors of the buildings much easier. It is a fictitious location in the Midlands which represents the BR blue and sectorisation period. Commuter trains run to Zurich and beyond, and the occasional locomotive hauled train appears. It wings its way into inboxes every Sunday rounding up our best content from the last week and a look ahead to what's happening. Some of the buildings are modified Pikestuff kits with the remainder being scratch built using Unit Models accessories. Had the Second World War not intervened, much more of the ex-SR lines would have been electrified. In 1892 the branch was extended to Hopeman and the harbour station was replaced by new station at Burghead. The harbour was used by fishing boats, pleasure craft, timber from the Baltic and the new oil industry supply boats. The ships in the harbour are of types found operating around Scotland are mainly scratch built from card and plastic. The modernisation era allows a variety of steam and diesel locomotives from member’s collections to be operated with both passenger and goods trains. Railtours often bring unusual motive power to the area including steam locos en-route to tackling the famous Settle-Carlisle or Shap routes.
Central to the layout is a blast furnace with its associated high line and a giant rolling mill turning the raw product into strip and slab products. The location is based on a medium sized station with a depot and fuelling point set in a small town with busy passenger and freight services to keep interest.
The viewing area consists of three 4ft boxes made from MDF and these stand on workbench trestles. The Burghead and Hopeman branch closed to passengers in 1931 but grain to the maltings continued well into the 1990s. The layout was designed full size, which enabled most of the buildings to be built before any construction of baseboards. The buildings have taken about one year to construct the baseboards and track work about two months. The track work is hand built using code 180 rail and slide on plastic chairs, glued to wooden sleepers. The wagons are also hand built using card for the bodies and commercially available parts for the under frames.
