At one end of Eccleshall Woods is Sheffield and District Society of Model and Experimental Engineers Ltd, in summer trees in full bloom you would miss it, in winter you can see parts through the naked trees, I have seen this place walked past her for some years today I whent a walk about.
underclassrising of course in no way condone trespass on live rail sites, readers should be aware this constitutes Criminal Trespass and contravenes Sections 128 to 131 of the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 (SOCAP). This can result in a £5000 fine or 6 months imprisonment, not sure on a model one but hey it had to be done.
Of late I have been thinking about urban exploration, how it is time travel, this was something else: Still a working model railway it had it all the detail was there, from little signals, to stations and bridges this had that obsessive anorak on a Sunday feel to the place, on a overcast October day it felt like you had gone back to the film set of say The Prisoner.
Here is the web page http://www.sheffieldsmee.co.uk for Sheffield and District Society of Model and Experimental Engineers Ltd, it was a walk in the woods but you know temptation gets the better, another trespass on railway lines, no doubt more to come.
