At each terminus, locos are stored in the MPD and operating turntables are used to back the engine onto its train. The Club has over 80 steam era locomotives, early diesels and DMUs. We have many carriages and wagons - there are 2 Pullman sets, 7 main line carriage sets, another 5 local passenger trains, 7 set goods trains and numerous other wagons for timetabled goods trains.
Although the emphasis is on operation, club members are encouraged to make buildings and create scenery for the railway. Members can work on projects for the station where they are currently operating, either alone or with the help of other members. Some of the completed items can be seen on the ‘Project Galleries’ page.
