Feature 1
Class 122 departs the halt with the first train of the day which includes the local trip working for a milk tank as a filthy Class 47 passes with a loaded engineers train ready for the next track possession.
Feature 2
An immaculate Class 33, perhaps “bulled up” for the VIPs on board the attached inspection saloon, pauses for the right of way. Are more line closures in the offing?
Feature 3
The twice daily milks are being loaded ably assisted by a class 22. One wonders how much longer this service & the loco will survive. The effects of Beeching & the road lobby are being felt everywhere in the local area.
Feature 4
Class 47 D1745 approaches the halt with a rake of loaded seacows in engineer’s olive having been loaded earlier in the day at Meldon Quarry.
Feature 5
Class 122 departs the halt with a single milk tank, this will be detached & trip worked by a class 14 “Teddy Bear” to & from the loading point at a local dairy.
Feature 6
The Mid-Day Express rushes through the Halt whilst a dusty Class 14 enters the branch with a local coal working. It appears there has been an accident in the adjacent yards as the ambulance escorted by the Police head for the nearest hospital.
Feature 7
A battered “Whizzo” heads the parcels whilst a recently repainted Class 22 into the recently adopted all over blue, passes with loaded grampus.
Feature 8
Class 22 6326 looks resplendent in its new livery as following the end of steam the ‘D’ prefix was dropped from all diesel locos. The Teddy Bear has been allowed access to the level crossing now that the bus has passed & its passengers disembarked.

North Sunderland Railway

Attached Image: D10-On-Passenger-91.jpg Attached Image: 106 shunting.JPG Attached Image: 986 at Seahouses.jpg Attached Image: 1787 at Seahouses.jpg

North Sunderland Railway

The North Sunderland Railway was one of the many small lines opened in the 1890s after the passing of the light railway Act. Its terminus and headquarters was at Seahouses. The line travelled approximately five miles to Chathill where connection could be made with the NER main line. The only intermediate station was at North Sunderland which was a good half mile from Seahouses! The line was built on the cheap using corrugated iron for the buildings.

The NSR bought Bamburgh from the Manning Wardle Company on H.P. It had a history of failing and so a number of locomotives were hired from the big railways. These included the classes Y1, Y3, Y7, J79, J71 and even an ex Lancashire and Yorkshire ‘Pug’.
The NSR was a pioneer in diesel traction, borrowing a demonstration loco in 1933 from Armstrong Whitworth’s and later purchasing ‘The Lady Armstrong’ from the same company. The Lady Armstrong’s sister engine can be seen running today on the Tanfield Railway.
The line was constantly beset with financial problems (from day 1!) and despite escaping nationalisation, it finally closed in 1951.
‘Seahouses’ was conceived during a game of chess in the March of 1983. The thought had been lying around in the back of my head since 1978 when on a school trip, our bus had parked on what was the site of the old station. Seeds were sown and over the next few years maps and photographs were collected, research was carried out and plans were eventually drawn up. With co-conspirators John Elliot and Charlie Garnell plans were formulated for an E.M. Gauge layout. Word got out and before an inch of track was laid two invitations to exhibitions were offered and accepted. There is nothing like an imminent exhibition to focus one’s mind on the task in hand! The first show was at Sunderland in September followed by the November exhibition in Newcastle. The deadlines were met although the trestles were completed on site at the Sunderland venue! The layout continued to be seen on the exhibition circuit until its last showing at Darlington in 1997 after which it was retired.
The layout lived in my garage in Houghton gathering dust, cobwebs and cat’s hairs, as my daughter’s cat found it the ideal place to sleep!. On my retirement it moved with me to Grosmont in North Yorkshire where it gathered more cobwebs. Then in about 2011 I decided to see if it would still work. After cleaning the track I put one of the trusty Y7s on the track and to our amazement it worked!. My wife took some footage of the first train to leave Seahouses since 1997 and put it on Youtube! If you have seen it; that was in the layout’s unrestored state!
I worked with Dave Scott on the restoration of an old layout Stop Gap and talking to him as we worked it was decided to give Seahouses a makeover! The only damage to the infrastructure was to the buildings. That was the cat’s favourite spot! New buildings were made and the layout rewired to push button operation for the points instead of the electric probe method. The trackwork was still in good condition. That is until I dropped a log splitter on it damaging one of the points which had to be replaced. Improvements included backscenes which the layout had never possessed, and the layout has progressed using the latest methods. Judge for yourself whether we have captured the atmosphere of the original by comparing the model with the photographs of the original.

[attachment=840533:IMG_1540.JPG][attachment=840534:IMG_1541.JPG]Campbell Riverside is a small freelance depot/serving point facility, for the refuelling and light maintenance of locomotives. The layout is operated by DCC with some of the locomotives fitted with sound.
The track plan for Campbell Riverside is based on an 0 gauge layout called 'Swansea Riverside' built by the late Alistair George of Luton Model Railway Club of which I am a former member.
There are many light engine moves around the depot. and also some freight moves to bring in supply's for the stores.

 

It is not set in any particular timescale or era, but is imagined to be somewhere in Canada near the US border, which helps explain the varied mix of locos seen on Campbell Riverside.

Batterdale

 

The railway layout we have built is principally goods based scene on a fictional rural East Yorkshire branch line, with some light passenger traffic, and is set in the late 1950’s so that both steam and diesel operation can be undertaken.

 

The railway emerges from a tunnel under the ruins of Batterdale Castle, complete with hunt scene, the railway continues into the valley and rural town where there is thriving loco shed providing much local employment, beyond the road bridge, which is under repair there is an industrial siding serving a food mill, both Grain and Milk traffic are seen regularly.

 

On the opposite side of the main line, the goods yard serves the local community, with coal, general goods, food, etc. and once livestock and horses from the local race stables and breeding yards, but this traffic is now infrequent.
Batterdale is an ‘N’ gauge layout of approx. 9’ 6” by 3’ 6” constructed by smaller modular baseboards, this is designed for future expansion and for easy of transport.

 

A recent addition is the raised embankment with local passenger station and coal drop which have been under construction for 2+ years,

 

There is a hidden fiddle yard with 12 roads feeding both up and down main lines and also two sidings supporting the raised embankment.

 

Controls are DCC, using the Model Electronics Rail Group (MERG) second generation system. Turnout operation is also controlled digitally utilising MERG CBUS and servo motors for the mechanical actuation. Operation is possible using mobile phones with the Android JMRI ‘Engine Driver’ App. Other planned future control developments are a mimic panel with indicating occupation, and computer automation via JMRI.

• Audience interactive scenery, e.g. servo operated dock crane. and buildings with ‘Real Smoke….’
