The SDRYT have 2 model railway layouts, one fixed display (Newton Mill) and one mobile display (Riverdale).
Our Newton Mill display is located in the Youth Team carriage at Stanhope Station and is open to the public on some railway running days at weekends and holidays.
Bachmann have kindly made a large donation to the SDRYT Newton Mill layout consisting of buildings, scenery, accessories, locomotives and rolling stock.
Above: SDRYT members are pictured with a small part of the items donated by Bachmann prior to starting work on the layout.
Track and scenery have also been provided by Bishop Trains in Bishop Auckland.
Riverdale is the SDRYT's mobile display, which is not based on any specific place but has a North-East theme. Riversdale is an 8ft layout which was constructed by SDRYT members and Bishop Trains. The mobile layout is used when the SDRYT attend events promoting the SDRYT.
