Blagdon

Description based on material supplied by the layout owner

Blagdon  
Phil Lovell & Mervyn Miller OO gauge 4mm scale

Blagdon was the terminus of the Wrington Vale Light Railway which left the Cheddar Valley Line at Congresbury. The station layout must be one of the simplest possible, requiring only 4 points. Yet it maintains operator interest with a regular passenger service and a small goods yard behind the station.

The station building is typical of the style used on the line, the other being of GWR origin. There is no signalling, the branch being worked as one engine in steam.

The track and point motors are Peco. The track is well ballasted in and weath- ered. Buildings are made from a mixture of card, plasticard, paper, corrugated foil etc. The stock is a mixture of proprietary and kit built, with a large section of kit built wagons.
