A model railway or model railroad should contain at least one steam locomotive. Therefore Pilentum has made this model train layout tour showing a mix of cab ride and operating session. This model railway layout is based on the little known narrow gauge “Tarrant Valley Railway” in Dorset, United Kingdom, which ran for about eight miles serving the local villages, chalk pits and airfield, opening during 1860. The Tarrant Valley is located near Blandford from an interchange with the Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway at Spetisbury, Great Britain. The layout depicts the railway line as it was during the 1920’s. The Wimborne Railway Society has built this modular layout in 4 mm scale (OO-9 Narrow Gauge), which has been displayed and continuously expanded over the past 20 years.
