I'm about to start work on building a new layout in 3mm scale. Yes, it's another ex GW branch terminus with a track plan inspired by an early 1970's layout from John Flann called "Little Hintock". This has been featured in many magazines over the years and to me is a simple yet interesting design.
A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending "Westfest", a gathering of 3mm area groups in the West Country. Amongst the many fine 3mm layouts on display was Steve Fackrell's delightful "Hennock". In a classic Western Region branch line scene a 14oo class tank complete with autocoach basks in the sunshine.
