St Kenvince

OO Gauge, 4mm scale - Sectorisation - late 1980s / early 1990s

Barry & Penarth MRC

The inspiration for this layout came from Burngullow in Cornwall. I was keen to get away from the end to end concept and have a continuous run for a change. The layout features a China Clay loading facility with the main line passing in front. St Kenvince is also where the main line becomes single track heading further into Cornwall.

Set in the sectorisation era of British Rail, I have tried to replicate many of the types of trains used during the period. All of the rolling stock is RTR from the main manufacturers and is fitted with Kadee couplings. Wireless control with smart phones and/or tablets is sometimes used and this can be demonstrated if required.   

If you have any questions about the layout, we would be most happy to answer them.
