Moors End - Reinier Hendriksen

Moors End is a sleepy little hamlet in Cornwall. Situated on the edge of the vast Ding Dong Moor, Moors End is the terminus of the Ding Dong Moor Light Railway, a narrow gauge line running typically from nowhere to nowhere. A few times daily a short train arrives, drawn by a tiny locomotive.

Moors End has a 13th Century church, a few houses, a pub and a garage.

This is the theme portrayed by Reinier with his museum quality precision modelling. All his buildings were made from good quality card and coloured with water based paint. Reinier used Pendon techniques, applying and colouring each brick and slate by hand.

His early locomotives and rolling stock were made from kits, but recently Reinier had started working with sheet brass for his locomotives, and card for his finely detailed rolling stock.

Reinier was a regular contributor to the 009 News and became well known for his witty articles and excellent drawings. Regrettably we lost him in April 2000, aged only 51. Both in the Dutch Group and in the 009 Society as a whole he is sadly missed as a good friend and respected modeller.

Luckily his work is still there: Moors End is still at his home, and his collection is being well cared for.
