This model depicts the Ashbourne terminus of a narrow gauge railway following the valley of Henmore Brook to Hopton and Carsington.
Trade consists of quarried stone and various milled minerals, also bricks from the brickworks at Hopton and grain and flour to and from watermills at Sturston and Atlow. A passenger service serves these places and also Hognaston.
The site of Asbourne terminus is now a housing estate and the upper terminus is covered by Carsington Reservoir - in fact the whole line would be difficult to find as it is a figment of the imagination!
The layout is operated by members of the Trent Valley Area Group of the 7mm Narrow Gauge Association.
