Peakdale represents a slice of ex LNWR mainline that was constructed through the Peak District of Derbyshire, en route to Manchester.
The normal timescale represented is late 1950s, early 1960s during the steam/diesel transition period of British Railways although we have been known to run more modern stock!
There is no station on the layout, but the line runs through dramatic scenery across a nine arch stone viaduct which has been scratch built and represents over one hundred hours work by club members Dave Barker and Paul Ransome and is a very impressive structure.
The track plan is simple, consisting of a double track main line, slow loops and a branch that diverges to the nearby community of Smalldale.
Peakdale has won The N-Gauge Andy Calvert Memorial Trophy (presented by Pete Waterman) at Warley 2005 and has also been featured in the following magazines:
BRM Magazine in October 1999
Hornby Magazine February 2012 (HM56)
