Amberdale is a single line secondary route through the Peak District of north Derbyshire in the last 1950's to early 1960's. Motive power for this period is steam with early green diesels.
Originally built to a brief from BRM and serialised by them, it was intended to fit into a 10 feet by 8 feet shed - hence the name of the series 'The Layout in the Shed'. The intention behind the layout was to demonstrate various methods of scenery construction and detailing.
The shed which featured along with the layout at many exhibitions including Warley and Alexandra Palace, now resides in a field in the south country, making a living as a very upmarket horse shelter!
Since then, the layout has been extended to make for more interesting running and some pictures are included in the gallery below.
