O gauge - 7mm scale layout built by Tony Collins, a member of the club. The layout is now looked after and exhibited by Steve Rogerson
A highly fictitious and improbably small rural GWR branch line terminus on an imaginary branch from Helston to the village of Goonhilly in Cornwall. Goonhilly was built to fit in a 10ft garden room and demonstrates what can be done in a small space in 0 gauge, giving interesting passenger and goods operation. The buildings are based on the various prototypes on the GWR, scratch built or from kits. Track is Peco. Points are hand operated from the front, using wire in tube. Fiddle yard is a removable cassette. The layout is wired to run conventionally, with a My Loco Sound unit, and the option of being operated with Digital Command Control (DCC) with locomotives enhanced with steam sound.
•The layout is 2.9 metres long x 0.50 metres wide.(9ft 6ins x 20 inches) and requires a 1 metre (3feet 3 inches) deep operating space at the rear. •Layout is self supporting on trestles/tables • A 6ft x 2ft table is required for storing off the layout stock. •Feed from one 13amp socket is required •No special transport requirements • 2 operators with third operator answering questions from public and acting as relief operator.
