The imaginary Vejle Banen a privatbane or light railway follows the Grejs Å (Grejs River) from a junction with the DSB (Danish State Railway) at Husby 9.5 kilometers (5.9 miles) to Skovdallund on Fårup Sø (Fårup Lake). The 50-70 meters high, forested slopes and tufa cliffs of the Grejsdalen (Grejs Dale) as it cuts though hilly terrain makes it a scenically unique part of Denmark. The Dale and Lake are considered beautiful parts of Denmark so tourism is a major source of traffic with the 22 kilometers long Fårup Sø having boat rental, campsite, fishing, and a reproduction Viking ship the Jellingormen, seen by 150,000-200,000 tourists a year. Goods traffic includes agriculture, forestry, and stone cut from the Dale's tufa cliffs. Historically the 13 water mills along the Grejs Å were a major source of traffic for example the Grejs Mill which in 1830 was the country's largest private clothing factory and employed 150 people
