Thornhill Town

00, Great Western Railway, 11.5 foot by 2 foot

 Guest layout


Thornhill Town is the latest layout to be built by Nick Gibson, a member of the Hampton and District Model Railway Society, and also a member of the White House Model Railway Group.

The layout is 11 foot 6 inches long and was designed as a GWR Branch Line Terminus with the station area based loosely on Bodmin town. A four road fiddle yard leads to  2 platform faces, one which includes a run round loop along with 2 sidings, one which has a goods shed. In addition a small kickback siding has been included which has a cattle dock however this siding can be extend to run onto one of several proposed scenic boards which will fit in front of the fiddle yard.

Due to the layouts size it is envisaged that passenger trains consisting of a maximum of 2 coaches and a tank locomotive and goods trains of up to 7 wagons will be run. Stock from other railway companies or eras could also be run.
