Background
Skaledale Bay is a ficticious station located somewhere in the North East of England at the twilight years of the British country station. Within a few years this station will fall out of use because of the 1955 modernisation plan and Dr. Richard Beeching, and, like so many other stations, will fall into disrepair and either be demolished to make way for new developments or left in place as a constant reminder of a once, more prosperous, village or town. Skaledale has been built using only Hornby products, most of which was kindly donated by Hornby themselves. The club was also given a Hornby Select DCC controller courtesy of Model Depot. The backscene was designed and painted in by the hall's resident artist, Helen.
