The fittings are on the match truck.  Now the crane hook has a housing for when it travels.

Class 142 DMU  ona Wetherby to Leeds Central All Stations  approaching Roseville Station  (round the corner).   The destination board on the train shows Wetherby for when it travels that direction.  The 'front'  shows Leeds Central.

The light through the train room window   plays magical tricks.

What looks like a misty morning Class 27  27037  passes Wyndham Farm/Canal Corner with a York to Leeds Central  local train.

When I first saw the last post, I read "The same train with Charlie Marston's Yard behind"

as "The same train with Charlie Manson's Yard behind"! Really popped my eyes open this morning! Whistling (then I re-read it and saw my error).

David, another thread got me to thinking.  I needed to comment on yours as well.

Great layout!  I really enjoy the photos and the stories that often accompany them.  Yes

Recent running of trains.

 

Inverness based Class 47   47515  'Andrew Carnegie'  is a long way from home.   Here it is on a two carriage Castleford to Leeds Central local passing behind Charlie Marston's Salvage Yard.

Here it is again  once again on a two carriage local,  this time Leeds Central to York  arriving at Roseville Station.

And now at the Junction.

parliamentary train is a passenger service operated in the United Kingdom to comply with the Railway Regulation Act 1844 that required train companies to provide inexpensive and basic rail transport for less affluent passengers. The act required that at least one such service per day be run on every railway route in the UK. 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parliamentary_train

 

In the 1960s/70s   the Post Office  paid British Railways   to run postal/parcel vans.  One way British Railways  could still run Parliamentary Trains cheaply  was to pay the Post Office to attach a passenger carriage   to a parcel van train.

Here is Class 47  47423  'Sceptre'  on a  York to Leeds Central parcel van train with a carriage attached.

Diesel Multiple Units (DMUs)  are staple traffic on the layout.

Here is a Leeds Central to Dewsbury Market Place  bound DMU  approaching Leeds Sovereign Street Station.

George Wilkinson, Telehone Engineer  is at his motorbike sidecar to fetch some equipment  to fix the telephone cables.

 

The scene was temporary to see how it looked  and now to be a 'permanent fixture'  with some bedding in to do.

Some new items have arrived at Leeds Sovereign Street Station and have been 'personalised'.
