On Thursday November 19 RM's Christmas Annual goes on sale.

Among the featured articles is one I have contributed and these two images will serve to introduce it.

For what is between you will have to read the article.

John, not, well quite, intended. it did however capture your attention, but the answer is there because the images span from 1967 and before, to the current day.

No matter, when I get my copy I'll help you out.

I still haven't got around to catching up on your Granby thread but I will do so. Currently the enhancement of Hintock TQ  and the new build to Port Bredy is taking up a lot of my time and there I shall report when I have a comprehensive story to tell.

And, as regards your weather it's headed our way. Good gor modelling activities though.

My regards,

The 4.25 pm from Weymouth with the "Grimsby Fish' on the front arrives at Hintock. The van will have been added at Hintock Junction having been worked down in course of the day.

Hintock Town Quay lies is situated just outside Hintock itself on the banks of the River Brede. When the Hintock Branch was extended to Port Bredy it was acquired and given a rail connection. Through various business machinations the S&DR acquired running rights so along with the GWR/SR as Joint owners it is not unusual to see LMSR locos working the branch.

The history of the Port Berdy extension is an interesting one historically and also as is the story of the HTQ layout. For it's not physically attached to my Hintock Branch layout-except in my imagination-for it is a stand alone layout.All this I shall write more about in due course.

But recently i have done some improvements and enhancements and these images show the result. First, virtually of all the layout and subsequently indiividual scenes.

I have not captioned the images but they are, I would like to think, self evident in what they show.








 














For more information and a recent post you can go to my website http://www.hintockbranch.com

And also, if you haven't seen it already the RM Annual 2016 has a fairly full acount of my modelling activities.

Ed, glad you liked the image as you did the previous offerings. There are plenty more where those came from and I'll pst more in due course.

Meantime here is a shot showing the basics of Hintock TQ. These show its lightweight construction and compact size of 4'10x1'4.

Great pictures John. :thumbs

I have to ask, does building a layout as you have utilising polystyrene foam (insulation foam ?) as a base, make the layout quieter to run ??

Cheers, Gary.

Gary, glad you liked the pictures. It does photograph well and I have many more.

I've never been bothered by noise. The top surface and on which the track is laid direct is of 1/16" birch plywood. Of course, only shunting takes place and at slow speeds so no noise is really created. It might be different say with running trains at speed.

The main reason I used it was because it is light, fairly rigid and was a 'left over'  from some building work in the home. It is foam and I am building another layout along the same lines but using polystyrene. It seems OK so far, but all the white bits that result from cutting it are a nuisance.

Thank you all for your Good Wishes-and for your interest in Hintock.

I cannot however claim any credit for the artwork. That is from my grand-daughter Holly, who is you have seen is an accomplished young lady.

Whilst posting I'll also mention that Christopher (my eldest son) and I have been working  on updating the Hintock websitehttp://www.hintockbranch.com/  and if you haven't already done so, or recently it is worth a visit.  

You will also recognize from these remarks Hintock is very much a family affair.
