This text driven story briefly charts the history of the Yorkton Docks from its earliest days through to the present time.

The Yorkton Dock modular set featured in this story is the largest set I have so far built. (So Iíll have to make sure I get plenty of use out of it!) Twenty-two 16 x 16 plates were used. Seventeen of the plates were Ďraisedí by the height of three technic bricks. Each modular section was then connected to other sections using a technic pin. The remaining five blue plates represent the River Flumen.

The majority of the buildings featured are building frontages only. This arrangement is similar to a film set so to aid me when photographing. Eagle-eyed readers will have noticed a British police public call box. These were a common feature in the UK in the 1950ís. I should point out that that is all it is. Itís not a TARDIS, so no Doctor or aliens on the rampage will be appearing in this series.

The Yorkton Docks doesnít cover a vast waterfront area, although there are warehouses out of view. As can be seen from the photographs there is a fair bit of activity going on when the photographs were taken. And if readers look closely they will see several familiar characters from this series and several small set pieces.
