Syston Model Railway Society
would like to thank everyone who generously donated prizes
for our TOMBOLA, which can be found in the Backroom.
Last year, Syston Model Railway Society donated
£290 to Bowel & Cancer Research.
Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA)
part of Helicopter Emergency Medical Services
Each year we choose a charity to which we give a donation from the profits of the cater-
ing. Last year we donated to Bowel & Cancer Research.
This year, our chosen charity is Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance
Helicopter Emergency Medical Services
We fly two regional air ambulances, also known as Helicopter Emergency Medical Ser-
Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA)
Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA)
These two helicopters provide a rapid response to trauma and medical emergencies over
an area of 3850 square miles. They cover many of the UKs major road networks includ-
ing the M1, M6, M69 and M42. With an average response of just 13 minutes, between
them they attend on average 6 missions a day.
All of the layouts on show are fragile and are the fruits of many hours hard
work. Please be careful when viewing; unfortunately not all damage is done
by little hands!!
HAWTHORN DENE – N Gauge Stand 1
This N-gauge layout represents the North Eastern Region's Durham Coast mainline,
somewhere around Easington in the late steam/green diesel period. The old Hawthorn
Dene Colliery no longer winds coal. Its winding gear has been removed and the shafts
fitted with fans. The washery and screens are still in use, mainly preparing household
coal for merchants and for the nearby landsale yard. Waste is still sent to be tipped on the
beach, both by conveyor belt and aerial ropeway. Indeed "Get Carter" will be filmed in a
few years' time at Blackhall, eight miles to the South.
Colliery locos bring empties from the exchange sidings to the South for weighing and
taking onto the screens, while full wagons are removed from the screens, weighed, and
taken either to the exchange sidings or North to the Hawthorn complex. Meanwhile the
mainline sees a procession of expresses, local passenger, fitted goods and coal trains,
which seem not to disturb the inhabitants of the pigeon lofts on the bank.
Buildings are typical of the area. The underbridge is based on the one at Easington
Colliery - the different parapets are a result of a partial rebuild, possibly following a
Control is DCC using NCE Powercabs. Some locos are fitted with sound.
FOREST GREEN MODEL RAILWAY – OO Gauge Stand 2
The original Forest Green was exhibited at Exeter Model Railway Exhibition in 2012. It
began life as Ray White's home
