I mention trains running to Leeds Central Station. As the real station closed 1st May 1967 I have taken the liberty of modellers licence and it is still open. It was opened in 1854 as a joint station between the London and North Western Railway, the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway, the Great Northern Railway and the North Eastern Railway. It replaced the cramped LNW terminus at Wellington Street, which had opened in 1848 with the line to Dewsbury.
On the model layout trains from Earlsheaton Junction are mainly DMUs and go to Leeds Central
DMUs also leave Central Station and travel to Wetherby and York passing Roseville School etc. on the way.
Diverted trains from the south can and do pass Crown Point and Sovereign Street before arriving Leeds Central. Hence Class 55s are seen.
Diverted trains from Huddersfield and Manchester also use the line. Class 52s are the locos in charge. (I have had a 'soft spot ' for them ever since I was 16 years of age) (Rule number 1 applies)
The odd train is seen diverted on the 'Wetherby Line'
Diesel engines that are seen at Crown Point are refuelled if necessary and go to Central Station OR Balm Road Quarry Sidings for their next turn of duty. Now I have a great turn round of diesel engines which I did not have before.
All good fun!
