Model of Saltburn Station.
The superb working model layout of Saltburn Station is about 24 feet in length and depicts an interpretation of how Saltburn Station may have looked if missing buildings and track still existed. The rear of the Zetland Hotel, shops and buildings on Milton Street. Dundas Street West, properties on North Avenue, Irvine Avenue, Marton Gill, both signal cabins, Jubilee sidings are modelled. Motive power is drawn from members varied stock and do not necessarily represent the true picture of the past. The layout is the work of Paul Harrison and David Lethbridge.

The railway photographs on display will cover a wide local area including Darlington, Thornaby , Middlesbrough, and Loftus area. recalling the days of steam and many visiting locomotives to Saltburn Station.

We are also interested in any reminiscences regarding Saltburn Station. For more information please contact Tony Lynn 01287 622519.
