Manufacturer description

The romance of the railways in the United Kingdom was arguably at its best when hundreds of minor railway lines traversed the countryside. In those days the locomotive drivers would have unscheduled stops along the line picking up or dropping off goods as they meandered from village to village. Consequently, it is not surprising that some of the local inhabitants who relied upon the railway would have called their local train 'Valley Drifter'.

This set includes a Hornby MidiMat and an oval of track which can be enlarged to a simple but effective layout with the addition of Hornby Track and Accessory Packs.

This Hornby Train Set is based on a Railroad specification. Railroad models are carefully designed to be less easily damaged yet maintaining attractive detailing and accurate liveries.
