devon railway centre
An unusual heritage venue is the Devon Railway Centre at Bickleigh, on the old Exe Valley Line. The site is centred on the old GWR station and includes a 2 foot gauge and 7 1/4" gauge lines. The two foot line has some incredible curves and really shows the versatility of narrow gauge! There are also model railways in some old mark one carriages. This is a particularly good spot for children!
This was a great idea - a short 7 1/4" line with a £1 operated Toby that the child could drive themselves! This was Wulfric - perhaps a bit too big for Toby - shunting.
