I have a soft spot for steam locomotives and your Berkeley looks at home. Nice locomotive.

Not too big.  😊  and like I said,  'One I saw regularly as a lad.'

As the Calder Railway fleet of locomotives are looking worse for wear in their various blue colours, the new Chairman, Sir Charles Anderson has ordered all the engines to be repainted in Midnight Blue colour.

Some of the locomotives returning for service in their new Midnight Blue livery.

Not quite finished, but here is the new colour scheme for The Calder Railway Company (with the approval of Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway the supporters and part financial backers of the line.) The Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway took full control of the line in 1920; before themselves merged with the LNWR in 1922.

Gone is the original blue of the locomotives to the new Midnight Blue colour. The blue coaches (actually sold as Caledonian Blue) are now Alizarin Blue lower (a mix of deep blue and a deep red) and Yellow Ochre upper

More pictures of Clarence Dock. The board is just under three feet long and six and half inches wide, (because of the door entrance.)

Yorkshire based wagons being shunted in the yard.

The dock section of the layout is more or less finished.

More people have been added.

Hi David I the rocket does look great, I must get myself one.

I received mine from a not too close a relative.   I usually get something railway related from them,  but the 'Rocket'  was a total surprise.
