Description: A fictitious GWR micro branch line station with minimal goods services of cattle dock, goods shed, milk dock and coal yard. Scenery, buildings and structures are scratch built using mounting card, plastic card and brick papers with the exception of the Peco water tower. Locos and stock are by Hornby and Bachmann using DC hand held controller. Track is Peco code 100 with points and uncouplers operated manually using coat hanger wire. The base board is made of 6mm plywood on a light timber frame for ease of transport and handling. Pelmet lighting is LED strip light. 

A micro layout gives opportunities to include finer details and small cameo scenes such as the children running over the bridge returning from school while some lads have sneaked off to play in the woods on the tyre swing. The cattle dock railings have been damaged and are currently being repaired while passengers patiently wait for their train. All buildings have lighting and detailed interiors.
