Clifton Lane Sidings - EM
Two layouts in one. With a left and right hand scenic section and central fiddle yard this layout is the 1st independent exhibition layout from 2 members who have moved up from the Keighley junior section. Short on space, this idea lets the members take an individual section home to build & run but they can also come together to make a larger layout. Based around York running modern diesels, there will be a canal section and buildings based on the area.
Back in 1974 when the club was formed one of our founder members, Harold Williamson, was keen to build a model of Shipley. This seemed a good idea at the time and he went about recruiting a team of fellow enthusiasts to help with the project. This is a large (35'x18') 00 layout, depicting the Shipley triangle using a 1936 trackplan. The group operates a wide range and variety of proprietary rolling stock and is currently working on the scenery.

This layout is fictitious based on the Halifax high level line, in the 1960's. Consisting of an industrial
landscape, cutting through the Calder valley. Including terrace houses, mills and a coal drop, in a
West Yorkshire setting with ex Great Northern, and ex Lancashire & Yorkshire running power.
The early stages of the building with the track laid hand made from C & L chairs laid on laser cut plywood sleepers.
Now the scenery has been fitted in recent days... here you can see the sloped road bridge with the embankment walls
also the fitting of the laser cut coal drops. - http://keighleyemgroup.webs.com
