Whiteadder Junction
Pateley Bridge

 

The Society hosts a group affiliated to the EM Gauge Society and a Gauge O Group. The members of these groups are also members of the Society but they build and finance their own layouts. They may be allocated space in our clubrooms. The EM Group has a "finished" exhibition layout, Whiteadder Junction, and the Gauge O group has "son of Lofthouse" - or maybe "father of Lofthouse" - in the planning stages. This is Pateley Bridge with representations of the NER station, the Nidd Valley Light Railway station and the exchange sidings.

Whiteadder Junction
Skipton Group EMGS

A country junction of ex-NER and ex-NBR lines in the Scottish Borders.
Scale: 4mm/ft, Gauge: 18.2mm (EM), LNER (ex-NE/NB), 1935
34ft x 2ft 6in (10.37 x 0.76m) overall, plus space for operators

Pateley Bridge
Skipton Gauge O Group

A representation of the North Eastern Railway and Nidd Valley Light Railway stations and exchange sidings at Pateley Bridge, planned in outline. This is pie in the sky at present. We love the idea but realistically we probably lack the resources to build and exhibit it. Still, because it's a nice idea, we present it here in the hope that it will interest you.
Scale: 7mm/ft, gauge: 32mm (O Gauge Fine Scale), LNER/NVLR, 1925.
51ft x 4ft (15.56m x 1.22m), start date to be decided.
