This is new layout project, being constructed by myself and other members of the Cleveland Model Railway Club. Some photos of the real Northallerton can be seen in my gallery folder 'new layout pics'.
The ratioanle for the layout is set out below.

multi-layered open construction
Prototypical layout; based on Northallerton junction/station as it is now.
