The Railway has an interesting track plan incorporating both a tunnel and a lattice steel bridge, which gives at least a 12-minute run of 1.5 km. or more. A signal box controls the turnouts, colour light and semaphore signals. The track is laid with steel rail and the turnouts were built by the members.
