Whinny hill
Whinney Hill Layout description – the high cost of building a railway to main line standards, as required by Government legislation discouraged the established railway companies from building lines into agricultural and country areas where traffic levels were low. The Government eventually relaxed some of these requirements with
certain conditions to encourage railways to be built into such areas to aid the development of cheap transport and so came about the ‘Light Railway’ as defined by an Act of Parliament. Many were built by individuals and organisations including several in the North-East, Whinney Hill is a fictional model layout representing a typical example of such a light railway set in the rolling English countryside. The railway mainly relied on second hand or hired-in locomotives and coaching stock to keep costs down, it also provided a through freight service to and from the country area to the nearest main line company and beyond. Track and points are made from C & L plastic components and Code 120 bullhead rail. Stock is a mixture of hand-built and kit-built with buildings mainly constructed from card. The layout is built to 7mm/ft scale, track gauge is 32mm.
