Models of the WC&P Railway – Introduction

This railway makes a wonderful subject for model railways. An excellent example are Andrew Ullyott’s superb 4mm/ft scale EM gauge layouts of Weston-super-Mare and Clevedon.

Both of Andrew’s layouts featured in a special WC&P Anniversary Exhibition in Portishead on Sunday 22 Oct 2017.

Stephen Ash has built a unique N gauge model of the River Yeo crossing which was exhibited at the WC&P Anniversary Exhibition in Portishead on Sunday 22 Oct 2017.

Models on the Market.

A number of WC&PR models have been available recently on the market ready made (such as the Antics Dapol Terrier opposite) or in kit form. They are often limited edition models so are not available for long.

An O gauge model railway was produced by Nailsea Model Railway Club and featured in a BBC TV programme about the WC&PR. Sadly the layout has been dismantled and sections mostly dispersed or broken up.

Drawings for modelling

Drawings of Hesperus and the Lancaster carriage can be bought from Col. Stephens Society.

Christopher Redwood’s book ‘The Weston, Clevedon and Portishead Railway’ has scale drawings of Hesperus, Lancaster carriage, and large Drewry railcar. See Books page.
