DRIFFIELD Scale 4mm - 1ft. Gauge 16.5mm ('00') by Hull Miniature Railway Society
Size: 24ft x 10ft (8m x 3m). Operators: Four, Transport: Van hire + one car
Driffield is based on the station and surrounding area of the Wolds town of Driffield in the East Riding of Yorkshire. The period of operation is approximately a 10 year time scale from the late 1960s through to the end of the 1970s. The scenic boards represent the area of Driffield between the two level crossings at Wansford Road crossing at the left hand end and Station Gates crossing to the right hand end of the layout. Various buildings can be seen which include wharehouses, goods yard, an extensive coal drop and, of course, the station itself. The trains are controlled using DCC although the points are operated using conventional DC methods.
