Layout Description

Nestling in a valley in the limestone hills of the Peak District, Signa Dale is a small town served by a narrow gauge light railway. The layout represents the 1950s when trains continue to serve the isolated farms and villages of the local area against the rising tide of road transport. A nearby limestone quarry, with its stone crushing plant, provides a steady flow of mineral traffic. This is supplemented by regular collections from the local creamery. Inspiration has been drawn from the sadly closed Leek and Manifold Valley Railway, Signa Dale’s station having been adapted from the surviving building at Hulme End.
