'G' Scale Layouts
The Yorkshire Dales 'G' Scale Group is affliated to KMRC and houses its layouts in the Clubrooms.
As well as meeting on Tuesdays, the Group's members also host 'Open House' days on summer weekends
where their garden railways can be enjoyed. The layout in the club is electrically operated, but some of the
Group's members run radio controlled live steam engines on their own layouts.

A circuitous layout with numerous sidings, passing loops and an engine shed with turntable. However,
space considerations mean that rather tight radius curves have been used! The layout currently has three
running tracks. The outer of which is operated as DCC under LGB’s MTS system. This allows us to operate
and demonstrate both analogue and digital control. We operate both European and American stock in G Scale
which is 22.5:1, predominately narrow gauge based upon one metre gauge.
Trollenberg Heights - The 'G' Scale Challenge
Linked to the main layout as a branch, this line zig-zags its way up a slope and is designed for youngsters to
practice their engine-driving skills. A tipper wagon has sweets placed in it at the top of the slope and the driver
has to reach the bottom of the switchback without spilling them to receive the reward.
