As the Toton site looks forward to it’s redevelopment for HS2, Edward has being unearthing some photography of it’s former yards glory days.
Curiously models of hump yards, or rather British Image hump yards, seem to be few and far between. This is strange in a way as they would be relatively simple to build, giving a huge amount of operational interest for both modeller and onlooker as well as removing the need to rearrange wagons by hand in a fiddle yard.
I have however found one notable example, Hazlebury Yard from Blyth & Tyne Model Railway Society, seen in the clip bellow.
