A Model Railway Layout based on the Cheddar Valley Line Station
Welcome to the website of Sandford & Banwell, a 4mm to the foot scale model railway layout based on
the through station on the Cheddar Valley Line as it would have appeared in the early 1930s under Great
Western Railway ownership.
The Cheddar Valley Line ran through the County of Somerset running between Yatton and Witham, becoming known as The Strawberry
Line because of the volume of locally-grown strawberries that it carried. At Sandford & Banwell considerable traffic was generated from
a nearby quarry, which had a short tramway branch south-east of the station.
