Totnes

A view from the station footbridge (now replaced) looking North East shows the vast scale of this Broad Gauge 4-track layout designed by Brunel. The original train sheds would have covered the platform roads at this example of a siding station i.e. where the platforms are adjacent to the tracks forming the passing loops, a siding being the original term for what is now called a passing loop. The Signal Box and Atmospheric Engine House are just visible on the left beyond the Up platform roof. The Down platform building replaced a structure burned down in 1962.
