I have been an absent member for too long and one of the reasons why is I, with my eldest son Christopher have been working on an online book-an ebook- on the subject of The Hintock Branch.

This you can read at http://www.hintockbranch.com/

The book is comprehensive and covers not only the "how" but the more important "why". Since writing further enhancements have taken place and these will be dealt with, over time, by updates.

This collaboration was all online for he is in Montana and I'm in Utah over 500 miles distant . Christopher too owns the site and acts as Webmaster with me as Administrator. It's a happy arrangement and we work well together.

And, if I am correct this is the first or if not that among the first ebooks in the model railway field.

Enjoy the read.

Hello John,

A pleasure to hear that you've been keeping busy with the ebook whilst also enjoying Hintock.

Your railway made a great impression of my intentions for my own layout, now deep into the fascinating research stage and with a track plan I'm happy with. It's the story behind a railway which determines the way it's evolved that I find so interesting. It adds true realism to the operational characteristics and helps us better appreciate an era just out of reach for many of us now.

I will continue to enjoy Hintock and am grateful for the inspiration it provided me and may it long continue to bring you joy.

Best regards,

Bill

Ron: that is appreciated. I hope you will continue to enjoy Hintock.

Bill: those remarks are very kind. I quite agree it is the story behind the layout that makes the layout itself credible. In my imagination Hintock s a "real" place as the narrative of THB describes and I always apply that thought when thinking of each development of the basic concept.

It adds so much more pleasure and in particular with regard to operation. There I have added another twist with the arrival of the S&DR on the scene and of which more later.

It is things like that which make the hobby both absorbing and so enjoyable.

And to both of you and others, please feel free to further comment or ask questions.

Here we go again, my fault Sol-I should have got it right first time-




Above: the Down local passenger train from Hintock Junction with a clerestory set allocated to Hintock has arrived at the platform. When the Down goods to Port Bredy departs from the loop the loco will run round and in so doing put the empty DDFA milk tank on Hintock Dairies (in background) private siding. It will add a van to its train from out of the Bay.


Below: on another occasion an elderly Pannier takes the Down goods to Port Bredy, passing over as it does a trestle bridge across an inlet off the River Brede.

Beautiful layout :thumbs. I agree with Sol, the last pic is a winner. Perhaps a Header photograph or Jigsaw of the Week...??

Cheers, Gary.

Have to agree with the posts on here John, that last photo of engine on the trestle bridge is a cracker. As for a good one for the jigsaw, that would keep me busy for a while,  a long while. Keep up the excellent work John.

Thanks gentlemen for those kind words and yes Max I'm happy to be riding the YMR rails again.

The S&DR has running rights over the Hintock Branch and that down to Port Bredy, above is the twice weekly goods  returning to Hintock, and below the line sees no regular passenger service as they were discontinued several years back, but here is a special working with 14XX and an autocoach.  A pretty sight.
