|Wold Farm Mushrooms is
a strange thing indeed. For some reason I became fascinated with
miniature railways. I found some pictures of some very interesting
prototypes on the internet. Things that I just felt I had to
build. I knew that 9" gauge lines were a popular tourist
attraction and I wondered if a 9" gauge line could have
a viable industrial purpose. To that end I created Wold Farm
Mushrooms. Based on the premise that a rail enthusiast farmer
built a line to serve his mushroom farm in a disused railway
tunnel on the Lincolnshire wolds. One thing that really appealed
to me was the idea of really small trains entering a standard
gauge tunnel mouth. Construction on Wold Farm Mushrooms is ongoing
and is entered in the RMweb small layout contest for layouts
under six square feet. As this contest has ended here's some
new updated pictures for you."Quirky and so darned attractive"
is how it has been described. I like that.
