A short history of the line.

When the Calder Railway built the line to Sovereign Street they passed Crown Point. Here they built a small yard prior to arriving at Sovereign Street (and Leeds LNWR Goods Yard)

Taking a break from modelling and running trains instead. After all, that's what it's all about. :)

As a supporter of The Medway Queen Preservation Society, Gillingham Pier. I purchased three railway wagons they are selling.
