DONCASTER

OO Gauge by

Peter Mitchell

 

Along the East Coast Mainline Doncaster has an unrivalled selection of InterCity, regional, local and freight trains (operated at present by GNER, Virgin Cross Country, Arriva Trains Northern (on their own account and on behalf of the West Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive), Hull Trains, Central Trains, EWS and Freightliner). The station itself has eight platforms (of which one, platform 3 is divided in two by a mid-platform crossover), four (platforms 1, 3, 4 and 8) are through platforms and the remainder (2, 5, 6 and 7) are bays. Between the lines serving platforms 3 and 4 run two high-speed through lines. Beyond the loop serving platform 8 run two through freight loops and beyond them are the sidings of the legendary Doncaster works.

This has been translated into a continuous-run layout based upon a four-track loop approximately 30' x 15' onto which is grafted a major station (based on Doncaster), a motive power depot, DMU re-fuelling/stabling sidings and a modest freight yard. The station itself is the dominant feature of one of the 30' lengths of board; the MPD and DMU refuelling/stabling sidings occupy the two shorter lengths and I have left the second 30' board as a representation of the four-track EMCL running through open countryside.

Many thanks to Peter for allowing us to show these pictures.
