Brixcombe is the Farnham clubs first P4 layout and portrays a South Devon terminus of the Great Western Railway.
Situated somewhere between Newton Abbot and Plymouth, the station serves a small fishing port in an area popular with holidaymakers. As a result traffic is suprisingly heavy with 2 daily expresses from London, a north to west cross country service and local trains from both east and west.
Goods traffic is dealt with by 3 daily services and there is an early morning collection of the overnight fish catch. Once a year the local squire organises a very popular point to point meeting necessitating the insertion of a horsebox special into the schedule.
As a result of the different interests within the Brixcombe team the layout can be running Dean liveried Cities and Bulldogs with early chocolate and cream stock, Churchward liveried Counties and Moguls hauling lake stock or Collett liveried Halls and Granges with 1930’s shirt-button stock. In the course of a an exhibition weekend you are likely to see them all.
Layout area: (inc. fiddle yard) 23 ft. x 3 ft 6 in.
