Modelling

Goathland Station was used by Hornby as the basis for a range of models in its OO Skaledale range. Whilst many of these are now out of production, retailers may still have them in stock. Items also frequently appear on Ebay.

A more accurate model of the main building and extensions, along with the Goathland Hotel, Birch Hall Inn, Church, and Garage are being produced byTrafford Model Centre - www.traffordmodelcentre.co.uk*.

A list of the various Hornby models is shown below.

The station group regrets that it cannot provide a service for modellers - as our small group of volunteers is fully committed (in terms of time) to looking after the station. However, a great deal of information can be found in a booklet titled "Goathland Station - a Brief History", which can be purchased from the NYMR website at www.nymr.co.uk/shop/Books.html . To see the location of the station in relation to the surrounding area, Google Earth shows a number of views of the buildings in the village and surrounding area.
