Steam trains run in the new scenery.

The afternoon Leeds, Scarcroft & Wetherby goods train has the signal to proceed north to Wetherby.

OH, That question 'UP', or 'DOWN' !!!

Simple I'm told all trains run up to London ......... Oh yes ?
What about cross country lines that don't really run to the
capital ??

I'm told on the prototype you can tell by the telegraph posts,
which side the arms are attached .... Uhhh ????

Showing my abject ignorance again.

I was once told, UP was to HQ and DOWN was away from HQ.

Calder Railway HQ is at Earlsheaton Junction. Calder Railway run trains to Leeds.
LNWR takes over Calder Railway. Local LNWR HQ is in Leeds and runs trains to Earlsheaton Junction.

Earlsheaton Junction is Up and DOWN
Leeds LNWR Yard is UP and DOWN

Simples!! :?: :?: :lol:

Work began on Winterwood Manor and the land around it. The original Winterwood Manor is in Northumberkland, about two miles away from the old Border Counties Railway (north of Hexham). When my oldest grandson visits and runs trains, he stops trains at the Manor. A little platform was built.

Thats a great idea glencairn. :)
From what I've read, landowners would allow a line to be built on / through their land if concession was made for a small halt or station for the "Lord of the manor".
Thanks

.....and if there were to be tunnels or bridges on their lands the portals/entrances would have to be ornate.
