|Alisten Lea Junction is a fictitious British location on the LNER. The station is served by a tramline, which transports vacationers to a small park at the end of the tramline where train spotters can view passing trains. Passenger expresses, pulled by steam locomotives, and diesels, are frequently seen. Coal, oil and mixed goods trains transport their loads between a main yard area and the branchline stations. The Junction provides a gateway to the terminal station Thomlyn Dunes, where passengers can change to Diesel Multiple Units heading further North on a single track route to Sleights and a branchline terminus at the village of Guisborough in North Yorkshire. An industrial area is planned for the Sleights area. The latest addition to the layout is operating colour light signals, achieved using simple track sensors triggering latching relays sending sensor status to a computer running JMRI software. The software is customized to control the various signals, based on block detection and turnout positions.
