Goathland Station aka Hogsmeade trackplans

Post by colin » Wed Jun 07, 2006 6:03 pm

Hi everyone,

I have just joined LNER and needed help in getting trackplans for Goathland station, have contacted station and they only have signalling plans. I am trying to do a Harry Potter layout with station, viaduct and castle. Hope someone can help.

thanks

Colin :)

Probably only of limited practical use, but the plan can be made out on Microsoft's Virtual Earth:

Looks like three coaches in the siding, and a freight/service train to the south.


Just tried Google Earth, but N.Yorks coverage is generally poor. Seaton Carew is strangely hi-res, as is the general Leeds-Bradford area. Last time I looked, you could make out the high-viz shirts of a track gang working on the K&WVR!

I think the three white-roofed coaches are camping/accommodation vehicles, and the goods stock to the south is the "demonstration" goods train.

If you look a few hundred yards further towards Levisham, there's a Goathland-bound passenger train visible - unfortunately, it's difficult to tell what's hauling it (there's no exhaust visible, so it may not even be a steam locomotive).
So - did anyone dare tell Stephenson, "It's not Rocket science"?

yes, google earth has a big duff spot over the York Area.

On Google Earth, if you follow the A64 towards Leeds/A1, you will see that it gets clear, and there's a house on the side of the A64, that's Nicks house, he owns the place next to us at work, and before we were taken over he was the Technical director.

thanks for info guys, also found out of date page on google images for goathland trackplan (very small image) think I may have to widen my layout to 3 feet to fit in all of station, sidings, coal truck bit & goods yard. with a length of 5ft, bit bigger than I first thought. :o

I hope these will give you a bit of an idea too, both directions from the road overbridge.

Hi Guys,

Just come across this thread and I've looked a Google Earth recently (one of the tutors at work raves about it), but, hey - great - MS virtual earth is better. I just looked at the Cleethopres views and zoomed in and I can actually see my railway in the garden - albeit about 5 years ago (that would appear to be how old the pics are) judging by the run that it takes - and that the B&Q new store is still the old Gas Board works.

But it's way, way clearer than Google. Thanks guys.

Regards,

GeoffB
