Model Railway Layout “Sidmouth” in 4mm OO Scale by Richard Harper

Richard Harper, a model railroader from Great Britain, had the idea to rebuild the terminus of an 8 1/4 mile branch line in Sidmouth, a seaside town in East Devon. Originally, trains ran on the former London and South Western Railway (LSWR) main line from Sidmouth Junction to Sidmouth. The line was opened in 1874.

The model railway layout represents Sidmouth as it was operated by British Railways in the late 1950’s. During this period there have been around 15 trains each way per day. Freight workings were generally limited to coal, agricultural and building products. At the Warley Model Train Show Pilentum made a beautiful cab ride directly into the terminus.
