P.S. Previous picture of Devon Railway Centre do they use what was I believe called Chudleigh Sation on the Exe Valley?

I was about to guess Pecorama ( out of desperation Wink ) and then I had a brain wave:

Incredibly, this looks like the only mention ever made of Pecorama until now

From the Midweek Herald

Quote
Beer’s model railway visitor attraction - Pecorama - is to remain closed for the rest of the 2020 season

A spokesman said they had made the decision after very carefully considering their options

He said they had investigated the safety implications, made estimates on potential income and considered these alongside the complications added by using parts of the site for manufacturing.

Sadly, they came to the conclusion that it is not sensible to try and open this year.

He said: “We will continue to maintain the Beer Heights Light Railway and the wonderful gardens and keep our social media accounts updated.

The model shop remains open, but only for collection of telephone/online orders, or by appointment.

I may try to make an appointment as I have a faulty Peco Smartswitch (turnout control system) that I bought from said shop back in February. I've just restarted modelling my N gauge layout.

I'm glad you put those last 4 words in for clarification.
