Description based on material supplied by the layout owner
Harbourne is a fictitious truncated branch in the Western Region of British Rail circa 1968 to 1973, it is hanging on to survival against road competition.
The station provides a sparse passenger facilities for a sparse train service.
Freight is varied and the goods yard is still reasonably profitable.
Some services enter and depart only using the run round at the end of the branch to access off scene industries further down the line.
Motive power is wide and varied includes class 03, 08 shunters plus mainline locomotive classes 25, 22 and 35 Hymek, plus the occasional Diesel Multiple Unit.
Built originally so I could show what can be done in a small space Harbourne is now ten years old and still a firm favourite at exhibitions, appears in British Railway Modelling in 2010.
