Alan Whitehouse suggests that the area’s once-plentiful collection of run-down colliery branches – all long since swept away – would make a good modelling subject.
John Farline describes how Wakefield RMS members undertook ‘Project 60’, to mark its diamond jubilee – a rendition in 4mm scale of this calling point on the Methley Joint Line in south Yorkshire.
