Castle Hill Quarry was, in real life, a small stone quarry on the hill going by the same name high above the town where I grew up. It did actually have a very short NG tramway, only about 100 yds long ...

I've recently converted three Faller Hit Train coaches for use on the FCPyF. They're about the maximum loading gauge that the railway will take but the main problem with them is their weight. They are ...
