13th February 2018 - New pictures of Moorside Parkway


RIGHT: The ‘N’ gauge model of Dent station on the Settle & Carlisle line now has a new home in a club member’s ‘Railway Room.’ This has created a large space in the clubrooms which is now occupied by Moorside Parkway.

The mew model is called

‘Moorside Parkway’

a fictitious location running mostly modern-image trains.

Bambury Shed was exhibited for the last time over the weekend of 17th; 18th; & 19th June 2016 at Quorn Station on the Great Central Railway as part of the GCR Extravaganza. The other stations on the railway featured larger scales and Garden Railways etc.

The model is now over 20 years old and repairs are becoming ever more extensive, and expensive. It has been sold to one of the club members and will be erected at his home following the exhibition

Moorside Parkway is coming together well. The track is complete and regular running sessions are carried out usually on Thursdays. The scenery is being built, commencing with the left hand end (from the viewing side). We are working towards the right as areas are completed. The Moorfield Parkway multi-storey car-park is constructed and has now reached the detailing stage.
