Long before the area of Sovereign Street and The Calls became fashionable apartments, restaurants etc. etc. I, as an eight year old, would travel from Dewsbury to Leeds, alone. Get off the bus at the terminus in Sovereign Street and walk along Call Lane and The Calls on my way to the Leeds City Tran...

Re: Diesels to Glenburnie Station

Thanks again for your comments, jaz.

It's a good job I did the backscene first prior to laying the track etc. I cannot reach it now, so it will have to remain as it is. :lol:

Nice idea, two in one, clever use of the space. I wonder how many others wish they had thought of that.
Thanks for your comments, jaz.

With the running of diesels as well, I have three layouts on the same track plan. Thus giving great variety.

Re: Steam Trains to Sovereign Street.

The fiddle yard. The track plan is part of Lybster Station (near Wick) When I feel like it I can run trains 'the other way'. Sovereign Street becomes the fiddle yard. It gives me 'another layout'.

Re: Diesels to Glenburnie Station

A view from the new grassland and bridge looking at the fiddle yard. Depending how I feel (and which grandchildren are here) the fiddle yard is north and south of Glenburnie on diesel days.

Re: Diesels to Glenburnie Station

I was wondering what to put between the level crossing at A Vinnerd's garage and 'The Bridge'. I came across the Coach and Horses Inn building whist on my travels. Here it now sits to the left of the level crossing. IMG_2508.JPG As the area had to be relatively flat for access to the fiddle yard and...
