Name Kadeleigh
Owner B.M.R.C.
Gauge 00 or 4mm/ft
Theme South Devon Railway/GWR. Based on the actual station Cadeleigh on the Exe Valley line, the trackplan follows the 1930's Cadeleigh diagram fairly well. The scenery was created by BMRC members.
Layout Guide
Originally conceived as a test track layout for members to run own stock. When building commenced, the layout scheme developed into an exhibition standard layout.

Scenery is a collection of small dioramic areas which have blended together extremely well to provide the country station feel. The fiddle yard is hidden behind a gentle slope to the rear of station area. The station area, track formation and buildings replicate the original trackplan for the time period, with the addition of two extra sidings for operational interest.

(The original station, Cadeleigh, is still standing albeit without operational standard gauge trains. It now hosts the Devon Railway Centre with a narrow gauge railway and several model railways.)

Points are controlled via Tortoise motors. Signals are made from Model Signal Engineering components and are designed to "bounce" during operation. To assist the operators, the signals and points are now interlocked and 'dummy' point rodding has been added for addtional effect.

A large percentage of the Private Owner goods stock seen on the layout, is from the local Devon area and is a much-appreciated feature at exhibitions.
