The village of Tigley lies between Totnes and Plymouth on the Western Region close to the foothills of Dartmoor. It is assumed that the village expanded in the late 19th century and was of sufficient size for the Great Western Railway to warrant building a station on the main line. A small goods depot, close to the village, lies at the end of a short spur and wagons are tripped to the yard from the station area. The yard survived the Beeching cuts in the 1960’s and is still in existence in the early 1970’s, before the TOPS numbering system came into use. This is the period depicted by the layout.
