Dewsbury Midland

Our award winning finescale OO gauge layout Dewsbury Midland is well-known on the exhibition circuit. It is operated either in the BR steam or blue diesel period.


An unusual view of the underside of the arches, showing that the detail does not finish when it is out of sight.



John Sherratt photographed an unusual visitor…


….and David Moore photographed a couple of others. How did Bob Harper sneak a USA train in?


The new working signal gantry which straddles the viaduct next to the mill building was photographed by John Sherratt

Three views taken by Wally Pugh at a running session. A peaceful scene at Dewsbury as a 2-car DMU trundles out of the station.


All of the big stuff is in the fiddle yard waiting patiently for a turn of duty.

A view along the length of the station side of the layout.
