Layouts

Bridge Street 00 dcc  (Neal Burrows)
 November Model Railway Exhibition Leeds-64

Easingwold East EM (A Oldfield)


Easingwold East is a fictitious extension to a short branch line that ran between the small market town of Easingwold and the main line of the North Eastern Railway at Alne, 12 miles north of York. The original station at Easingwold was never graced with a name board but the branch extension to a terminus now warrants clear signage. The Easingwold Railway opened in July 1891 and laid its claim to be England’s shortest standard gauge railway. A plausible reason for the modelled extension was the need to transport farm produce and goods between Brandsby, 5 miles east of Easingwold to the North Eastern Railway main line just south of Alne. The popularity of the Easingwold Railway prompted the North Eastern Railway to seek a Light Railway order in 1911 and build a line in competition to the Easingwold Railway. This would be between Brandsy and Haxby, just over 9 miles, but fortunately for Easingwold this was never constructed due to the outbreak of WW1. The layout will operate with late BR steam into early Green diesel stock, mainly kit built and RTR converted locos with the rolling stock being predominantly kit built from Slaters or Parkside Dundas kits, using 3 link couplings. The layout utilises SMP trackwork, Fulgurex electric slow action point motors, operated using the power from the controller. The layout appeared in the August 2012 edition of Railway Modeller.
