Staff Projects: Quarry Progress


Quarry Progress

Topley Dale’s new quarry scene has taken big steps forward this autumn and is well on the way to completion. MIKE WILD rounds up the latest developments and explains how the track and ground cover has been weathered for a more realistic finish.

Above: Metro-Vick Co-Bo D5700 passes under the bridge with its Crossley two-stroke engine rattling the air at the head of a rake of empty ICI hoppers while in the quarry sidings a Peckett ‘W4’ 0-4-0ST shunts a cut of hoppers under the loader from the headshunt.
