The essence of Hintock is the emphasis on operation.

This map shows Hintock's geographical location and the railways in the near vicinity.  And to which the Hintock Branch is connected via Hintock Junction on the Joint GWR/SR main line between Dorchester and Yeovil, and thereby into the GWR and SR systems themselves and through those into the LMSR and LNER. 


This diagram illustrates  the manner
                                              


This diagram illustrates the traffic flow onto and off the Hintock Branch. It follows trains can be run to replicate these services. This is what gives me the opportunities I seek to run such a series of trains and representative of such trains as would be found in a days workings of the Branch.




Here we have a local stopping at all stations passenger train train running into Hintock from the Junction. Behind the coach is a SR GUV from off the SR at Dorchester and the two empty milk tanks are destined for Hintock Dairies having worked down from London (Kensington) on their home road, the GWR..

Unfortunately there appears no "edit" ability in "preview" . If so, please tell me how.

What got lost was the map referred to. So here it is.

Please read the post accordingly.

G'day John,

Welcome back and lovely to see Hintock again, especially the new straightened station platform :thumbs. I AM looking forward to more pictures and discussion on how you retrospectively added the extension to the baseboard.


Best Regards


Marty

G'day John,

The maps you provided explains quite a lot, especially what traffic came into Hintock and from where. The pics of the station and the amendments, at first I couldn't work out... :???: Then it dawned on me that you have extended/widened the baseboard and straightened the platform..:oops: 

Excellent work, keep us posted on the improvements ! :thumbs

Cheers, Gary.

Marty, thanks for that, I'm happy to be back and look forward to more anticipation in YMR activities-over time.

And to yourself and Gary I do have some construction photos illustrating the initial work and that which I did for the enhancement (s). All small but significant.

Meantime here are a couple of the entry curve  and that to Sheepcroft Yard. One shows a little of the very useful shelf along the front and something of the room in which the layout is located.

I have a lot of catching up to do since I found myself "otherwise engaged" over the last couple of months John but it's great to catch up on Hintock.

Your attention to detail is wonderful and Hintock looks just as a rural branchline from that part of the world should - a far cry from my industrial memories of the North ..........:thumbs:thumbs

Petermac, happy to be back; as part of your catching-up and for others above is Hintock Town Quay, my virtual extension of Hintock Redux and as seen in the December RM.

And below, James and Harold Pearce the local coal merchants.

Darius, glad you are enjoying Hintock, here are two more for you.




And Petermac this is for you, to answer your question Pearce is not a family name but it is an old Dorset one.



I'm disappointed that these images are not more sharp. Some sharpness will improve them. Next time i shall do it before posting. The detail is there and it needs bringing out.

Great scenes as always John.

Never noticed that the Crown Prince had its beer kegs delivered to its own loading dock before.

Thanks Marty. Crown Prince Brewery generates a lot of traffic. They produce a good brew!

The latest shot of the coal drop is wonderful John. :thumbs:thumbs

The rusty buffer stop is amazing - how ever did you create the perfect rust effect ?  It really does look to be 3D with the rust eating into the metal exactly where it would on the lighter gauge stuff but only sitting on the surface of the parts which are either less vulnerable or thicker (stronger formulated steel :roll:) - the rails etc. 

I also love the weeds growing in the setts - as I said earlier - an incredible amount of detail built into that one small scene.  That, to me, is what sets some layouts on here so far ahead of others - not the "technical" stuff, it's the attention to detail.

Petermac, you were inquiring about the buffer stop; most is happenstance, there the effect was achieved with slap dash coats of paint.

The surface of the yard is hard board bumpy side up, to simulate the setts and which brings the surface to about sleeper top height and roughly undercoated with dark and light gray-when still wet. The grass effect is very wet white glue, a squirt of water to dilute it further and a light application of flock.  Some too got on the stops.

Another set of stops for your consideration and a bit more basic scenery.

27XX shunting Hintock Farmer's Siding, but particularly for Petermac and his interest in buffer stops.

Good to see you back here John. I somehow missed the return of Hintock but now that I've found it I shall be keeping an eye on it as it is one of my all-time favourite layouts which has provided so much inspiration to not only myself, but also to modellers all around the World. Your eye for, and attention to, detail is awesome and the overall 'picture' that you've painted is so realistic. 

I particularly like the way you use  large trees to break up the sky background so as to draw the eye to the little scenes you've created which are so reminiscent of the Dorset that I remember from just after WWII. I congratulate you on achieving the splendid age you have and look forward to seeing more photographs of your wonderful layout for many years to come.

Thanks for coming back to us and I wish you a Very Happy Christmas and a Peaceful New Year.

Trevor, that is a most warm and generous welcome. Thank you. As I've said before, and no doubt shall say again, I get a great deal of fun, pleasure and amusement from Hintock and I'm glad to be able to share it with others.

It will take a little while to catch up with things on here and to recount more of the happenings at Hintock. But there are two I can mention:-

first, I have extended the layout by the addition of Hintock Town Quay and which is featured  in the December RM, and

second, Hintock is now the subject of an online book: further chapters are being written along with the addition of a picture gallery. Even so it is substantially complete as well as comprehensive. A good read, in fact.

The power behind the book are my two sons, Christopher an Immigration Attorney in Montana owns the site, acts as editor and has set the site up, Nicholas here in Utah a Professor of Computer Science helps me when I get stuck with the technical stuff. He also enjoys operating Hintock. So its a family affair.

Whatever, but I do commend a look at the book.

All good wishes to you and other members for a Happy Christmas and that Healthy New Year.

My cup is overflowing John - not one but two magnificent shots of the buffer stops - oh yes, and some other "stuff" in the background .............:mutley:mutley:mutley

I can only echo what Trevor so eloquently said - an almost unbelievable attention to detail but I suppose, that was a part of your working life. :roll:

Neither of these latest shots show much in terms of area, but there's just so much to see in each of them.  Nothing has been left out and it could indeed, be a shot of the real thing. :thumbs:thumbs

I will certainly have a look at your online book - many thanks for the link.

Petermac, thanks for that.

I have just tried that link and it takes one, for some reason, to an older version of the book.

The latest version which is greatly improved is best found via Google-Hintock  will do the trick.
