Set in the North East of Manchester Smethurst Junction depicts a small suburban branch line with a terminus station and freight facilities from the late 1990’s to the present day. Frequent passenger services are provided by a variety of Diesel Multiple Units operating from Manchester Victoria and beyond. Train loads of steel and general merchandise are for the distribution depot and additional sidings are for engineers’ traffic. A small locomotive servicing point is on the lower-level yard. The loop line allows other freight traffic to run round and gain access to another terminal further along the line.
