Yorkshire (East) Area Group

 
The EYAG is a small, friendly group that currently meets once a week at the clubroom of the Hull Miniature Railway Society (HMRS). We have a group layout, Botanic Gardens, which is based on a former North Eastern Railway (NER) suburban station in west Hull that disappeared when the lines to Hornsea and Withernsea, and the low level line to Hull's Eastern Docks were closed in the 1960s. The track layout is relatively simple but the project combines plenty of buildings, varied traffic and a tramway. The period selected is circa 1914 to fit in with the pre-grouping interests of project members, although geographically only one of us is an NER aficionado, one other relevant allegiance being LYR (useful for excursion traffic).

 
Pictures and details of Botanic Gardens can be seen on RMWeb as well as the Botanic Gardens Blog
