The former Hull and Barnsley Railway terminus at Cannon Street in Hull was the inspiration for the Hull Miniature Railway Society to build this enthralling 2mm finescale railway. PAUL DERRICK explains all. Photography, Jonathan Newton.
Lockwood Street is the latest project from the Hull Miniature Railway Society (Hull MRS) ‘N’ gauge group. It is an urban secondary terminus station, inspired by the former Hull and Barnsley Railway’s terminus at Cannon Street in Hull. The idea came from a wish to do something a bit different to any of our previous layouts and with Hull’s status as ‘City of Culture’ in 2017 in mind, a desire for it to be based on a local location.
