The Yorkshire Group of 16mm N.G. Modellers Ltd

"Mount Dowd","Dixon Green"and" Saed y Parc "

The Yorkshire Area Group of the 16mm NGM owns and operates the portable layout "Mount Dowd". This was built over 2005 by some of the Yorkshire Group Members and replaces the original "Mount Dowd" which ran for many years as the Group's layout. It was updated with new corners in 2015 by John Orson and Tony Marshall.

"Dixon Green/Saed-y-Parc" was added in 2006 as a scenic layout and is still "under development". It was first exhibited in 2012.
