The model is based closely on Hungerford station, situated on the Great Western Railway main line from Reading to Westbury and Taunton, as it was in the late 1920s. Much research has been done to accurately show the railway structures and buildings, and the adjoining section of the town although, due to having to foreshorten the ends of the layout, some town buildings have had to be omitted or reduced in size. A section of the Kennet and Avon canal, which runs close to the railway immediately east of the town has also been modelled.

A representative selection of trains have been built including West of England expresses, Plymouth boat traffic, parcels and milk to London and terminating services from Yeovil and Westbury. A variety of freight traffic is run including local pick-up services and livestock movements.

The buildings are all scratch-built as is the working level crossing. Locomotives and stock are built from kits or are modified ready to run. All signals are working models including the shunting signals. The layout uses traditional analogue control except in the goods yard which uses DCC.

This layout is available for exhibitions. Please contact Frank Davies.
