Why did I build this:
Inspired by LEGO City 4204 The Mine, Emerald Night (10194), Disney Train (71044) and Lego Fans (Concore, Josephine N., Brad Deamon and CoyoteMedia), I want to design narrow gauge railway that can play smaller trains and fit with minifigures. So Lego fans, including Children can enjoy more fun and support steam trains, also they can learn history of real railway and learn more about Rev. W. Awdry, as a legacy, who wrote many railway stories and Britt Allcroft who made television of railway series.
 
If you think Talyllyn Railway can make a great LEGO Train Set, please let me know your comments and support.
Thank you very much.
