© Twickenham & District Model Railway Club 2011-2023
‘Batty Moor’ is based on the sidings at Blea Moor just North of the Ribblehead Viaduct on the Settle to Carlisle Railway.
The area changed very little between 1945 and 1965 allowing us to run trains from post war LMS, through nationalisation, and BR steam to the green diesel period. Train formations are modelled on actual prototypes that ran along the line ranging from Express passenger trains to various mineral workings.
The back scene is constructed from photographs taken on site. All the buildings and structures are scratch built and although it is not an exact model of the area it is very recognisable.
Running sessions allow members' stock, of any prototype, to operate over the long continuous circuits controlled using conventional DC, but DCC systems can easily be connected.
Members' interests vary considerably from British pre-nationalisation to modern image, Japanese, North American etc.
The Club welcomes modellers of all abilities to come and join the ‘N’ Gauge team.
