A brief history of DAGNALL.

Useful information for exhibition organisers.

'Dagnall' is a small. 8 ft. x 2 ft., hidden fiddle yard to branch line terminus layout, based on L.M.S. & early B.R practice and is the third exhibition layout to bear this name. (Number four is currently under construction.)

The layout is operated with stock depicting the periods 1935 -1945, 1945 -1955 & 1955 -1965 thus enabling some very interesting and unusual locos to be run including early diesels from the 'All Green' livery with warning 'Whiskers' period.

Most of the stock is detailed proprietry items but many kit, scratchbuilt locos and wagons are also to be seen.   In particular is the scratchbuilt model of an L.M.S. Sentinel Railcar, which is seen in service on the branch during the early 1935 - 1945 operating period.

The layout is operated to a sequence timetable with particular emphasis on prototypical movement of stock at scale running speeds.

The Layout has also been designed for a maximum of two operators with for ease of transportation and is easily accommodated in a hatchback type vehicle, thus keeping travelling expenses to the absolute minimum.
