Layout Guide
Mopsies Peat Bog & Nature Reserve Light Railway is the full name of this layout. A peat works and nature reserve all in one.
On the right side is the industry area, where the peat is taken to be processed. In the same area is the station for the passenger train to take the birdwatchers to the nature reserve for bird watching.
On the left side is the nature reserve and peat bogs. This is where the locos collect the peat and take it to the industry area and where the other station is for passengers get off, to walk around the nature reserve or watch the birds.
In between these two areas is the engine shed, river and the pumping station. The area is always busy with freight or the engine shed with a loco being repaired. The river is a good place for fishing and you will always see a fisherman trying to get a catch. Opposite him is the pumping station which is used to pump water out of the peat bog, so the peat can be brought back to the works.
The peat bog is always busy and full of action and is improving all the time.
