In stock, immediate despatch

We  explore a relatively unknown narrow-gauge railway in Austria - Die Niederösterreichische Höllentalbahn. This 760mm line links the Semmering railway with Hirschwang, along the Höllental  valley in the Rax Mountains.

We are in France for our second chapter, for a tour of the Chemin de fer de Provence – the only non-heritage  narrow gauge line not-owned by the SNCF.

Our third chapter is set in the Czech Republic where we have a cabride south of České Budějovice on the international mainline towards Linz. This is an electrified mainline supported under the European TEN Transit Corridor Protocol.  It is part of a link between Sweden and Italy.
Close to home in Warminster for the final chapter from a UK model rail show,  where we find- among others- a Z gauge layout with a working river!
