In this "unnatural" view - in other words
one you can't see when the layout is
assembled - the arrangement of Tupdale's facilities becomes clear. The lofty
heights of "Tupdale Pike" behind remind us how far we are above sea level.
indentThe goods yard consists of a coal
siding, a typical Settle and Carlisle goods shed and two plain sidings for general use.
The turntable with its famous stockade will be familiar to anyone who knows the S&C.
indent Placing the turntable a long way from the engine shed is also an unusual feature - and one rarely modelled - but is very much as things were arranged at the S&C station of Garsdale - except that there they were on opposite sides of the main line too! The engine shed at Gardale was in fact a North Eastern Rly one and had been demolished by 1955 - but I have been known to stretch the truth if the customer wants me to!
