Valley Heights Room: Valley Heights in the 1950s

This layout of Valley Heights in the early 1950s features:

  • The 2 storey signal box (in December 1951 the top level of the Signal Box was destroyed by bushfires resulting in operations being relocated to the ground floor)
  • Facilities to water steam locomotives prior to the climb from Valley Heights to Katoomba
  • The coal stage, removed in the early 1960s
  • The building which houses the shop, prior to the extension which now houses the working model of Valley Heights

This layout is DCC controlled and features locomotives and rolling stock common in the 1950s.
