Ilfracombe 1972

A family holiday on Exmoor in 1972 led my father and I to the abandoned ex-LSWR, ex-SR station at Ilfracombe.  An interesting two platform station at the end of the double tracked branch from Barnstaple, the station had heavy traffic and large locomotives in the holiday season.  I’ve never seen a model of Ilfracombe, but someone must have built it, as it is such a good prototype.
