A key feature of the Boston Collection is the large OO scale model railway based upon GWR practice between the wars in Devon.  The layout is operated according to a set timetable using a fast clock, with operators using traditional bell code equipment to communicate with each other.  The day starts with the down sleepers and ends with the up sleepers.  In line with the railway practice of the day, through trains to other companies can be seen with through coaches to Aberdeen and York to name  a few destinations served by trains passing through Olton Priors.

The main station is Olton Priors, a through station with  through roads as well as platform roads, I believe it is based upon Newton Abbot.
