KENDAL MODEL RAILWAY CLUB
PAST CLUB LAYOUTS
Here you can see some of the layouts the club has built in the past, now retired.
Askrigg Bank was a large 00 exhibition layout, viewable from all four sides and incorporating a 1 in 40 gradient.
Askrigg Bank depicted either 1930's or 1960's eras, utilising two sets of stock. Here we see an LNER excoursion train.
Underneath the scenic boards was a cleverly hidden multi-level fiddle yard.

The station on Askrigg Bank took up one side of the layout and included provision for dropping banking and pilot loco's.

The viaduct was a popular feature of Askrigg Bank. The layout now resides in Ireland.

Copies may still be available...
