Model Railway based on North East England large scale junction in the 1960’s
This video is the first of a series re-creating the role of the Station Pilot. The Station Pilot could be seen at most large stations and whose role was to move stock around within the station limits. Duties included the dismantling and forming of trains at the beginning or end of their journeys.
This film shows how a parcels train might have been assembled.
There is a series of articles which give details of the design,building and operation of the railway in my blog. Read the articles in reverse order (first is at the bottom of the list)
