The layout aims to depict in as small a space as possible, the gist of the installation that used to exists at the north west end of Barnstaple Station.
The trackplan is a very simplified version of the original, though by the late 1970's there was in real life no more, in fact less than there is on this small layout.
Basically one end goes to Exeter, the line then splits into the Ilfracombe line, retained as passenger only in our supposed location and era and the line the line that leads to Torrington and Meeth.
Again we have supposed a retained passenger service, but only as far as Torrington. Freight is mainly ball clay and fertilisers.
