Mothecombe Layout


MOTHECOMBE – ’00’ Gauge – Junior layout
The High Wycombe club has a tradition of encouraging and supporting younger railway enthusiasts and this layout is an example of the level of modelling achieved by a group of our Juniors with the support of experienced club members.
Their current project, Mothecombe, is a quiet through station on a rural line somewhere in south Devon, close to the coast and Plymouth, and is operated in both GWR/SR or BR periods. At either end, two fiddle yards feed trains through the layout. A bay platform is provided for the local push-pull service
and a small yard serves the local community. Occasional diversions from the main line add interest during the day.
Our younger members are now embarking on an extension, adding a scenic section that captures the nearby Devon coast.
