Lynton Station 009

Description based on material supplied by the layout owner

Lynton Station 009  
John Nicholas OO9 gauge 4mm scale

This model depicts the Lynton and Barnstable terminus in the middle of the 1920's as re built by the Southern Railway. The buildings are scratch built, mostly by Colin Hall, based on Wills embossed sheets, using drawings in Stephen Phillip's meticulous book Lynton and Barnstable Measured and Drawn.

The station is operated to the Southern Railway working timetable of the period where there were no goods trains, all trains being mixed and including scheduled Road Box workings.

Some rolling stock remains in the L&BR livery, whilst others are in Southern Railway colour scheme. The locomotives are Heljan, most wagons and carriages Peco, and some kits from Langley. Peco 009 track and paints are laid. The yard crane was built by Colin Hall from an etched brass kit.
