Features: Much Murkle, Western, 1930s
Published 15 September 2017, 10:36
Much Murkle represents a rural Great Western Railway (GWR) terminus at the end of an eight-mile single-track branch line.
Loosely set in the 1930s, passenger traffic is supplemented with freight to and from nearby Much Murkle quarry and the local cider factory, as well as general freight traffic for the local goods yard.
Owned by Nick Wood, this 'OO' gauge layout is analogue controlled and locomotives and rolling stock are a mixture of detailed ready-to-run and kit-built items.
Much Murkle appeared in the July 2012 (HM61) issue of Hornby Magazine.
