The British Modellers Club “CLAPHAM”, CLevedon And PortisHead Armchair Modellers, presented its OO gauge model railway layout, called “Devenport Road”, at the Warley National Model Railway Exhibition 2018 in Birmingham, Great Britain. As the name suggests, Devonport Road is based in the suburbs of Plymouth.
The station was the junction of the Southern Railway withered arm into Plymouth and the Great Western branch to Cattewater. Passenger traffic is in the hands of diesel multiple units (DMU), but there is still substantial freight. The model railway layout is self-standing and occupies a footprint of 4,000 mm by 1,800 mm or 14 feet by 6 feet, including operator area and access and stock storage area. In June 2017, the layout became an award winning model railway layout at the Shepton Mallet show.
