The layout is inspired by the Lavender Line in the days of Dave and Gwen Milham but is set on the Halkyn Plateau in North Wales. I have assumed one of the several proposed lines to the limestone quarries of the Plateau was built and on its closure the preservationists took over. They have reused the engine shed and wagon repair shed is now the carriage shed. Platforms, an old coach as a shop and cafe, and a picnic area have been added.
