SCARBOROUGH and District Railway Modellers are holding their annual show at the Memorial Hall in Pickering.

The event will take place on August 20 and 21 and will feature at least 10 working layouts on display ranging from 2mm through to O gauge.

Club member Ian Harper said: “This year will see several layouts which have been built by club members with an emphasis on digital control.

“Showing for the first time will be a full computer-controlled layout which has been built by club members Roland and Steve Wood.”

Other club layouts on show will be “Haymarket Cross”, a fictitious OO steam shed which is based on Scarborough engine shed in the early 1960s.

This will include around 100 working locos, many of which will have sound. Other DCC layouts include “St Cyrus”, based upon a station on the East Coast of Scotland and “Heron Lane”, a modern image diesel depot with both layouts operating sound equipped locos.

Making a return will be the club’s fabulous ‘N’ gauge layout “The North of England Line”, a fictitious through-country station.

Mr Harper said: “This layout has some wonderful scenery with many hand-made trees, a village, river and many people and animals, all of which have been hand finished.”

The show is open between 10am and 5pm on the Saturday, and 10am to 4pm on the Sunday.
