The main purpose of the Company is to organise Events and Open Days in Yorkshire and to oversee the running of the Yorkshire Garden Railway Show.
These events included a number of shows and full-day garden railway meetings. In addition, members in Huddersfield, South Yorkshire and the Leeds area get together regularly on summer evenings – the "Huddersfield and District Shed," "Sheffield Shed” and “Leeds and Bradford Shed” are a popular informal way to enjoy playing with steam (and battery) trains in the garden. Our open days are very sociable affairs.


The Yorkshire Garden Railway Show normally takes place over two days, usually in the last weekend in September. One of the larger shows in the garden railway show calendar, visitors can expect to see at least five large layouts and more than thirty suppliers of garden railway equipment. The show will take place at the Richard Dunn Sports Centre in Bradford in 2018.

Mount Dowd, Dixon Green Light Railway and Saed-y-Parc
The company owns three portable layouts constructed to 16mm scale, together with trailers used to store and transport the layouts.

Mount Dowd is a large layout that is ideal for operating a number of trains at once; Dixon Green is a large scenic layout more suitable for smaller and geared locos, and Saed-y-Parc is a end to end dumb-bell with sidings and scenic interest. Dixon Green and Saed-y-Parc can be joined together to form one very large layout.


We are all involved in 16mm Narrow Gauge Modelling in or around Yorkshire. We also have friendships and activities that cross the boundaries of Yorkshire to adjacent counties.
Many members have their own garden railway. This is not a necessity, however, since there is plenty of opportunity to run trains on other members’ railways. Indeed, a good introduction to the hobby is to try and work your way around all the open days and other activities – you will probably need around two years to fit them all in!
