Model of Stockton Station – Canopy Removed 1979

This really was the start of the model railway four years ago and inspired by my trip on a train from Stockton to Newcastle in December 1978. The desolate views really were depressing given a cold winters day. This model still requires more detailing in the station area as time permits. I therefore recreated in the model a brighter time in the days of Stockton Station.

First photo is of an A2 Locomotive at Stockton pulling ‘Cream and Maroon’ carriages (MK1 British Railways).

Second photo is a Diesel Railcar set Class 101 showing a head-code bound for Middlesbrough which I think many Stocktonians will have travelled on.  The model is a depiction of rather than accurate copy of Stockton Station pre-1978/79.  Hope it stirs some more happy memories for visitors to the site
