Appleton Dene depicts a narrow gauge line running through a station and providing rail access to a factory and a builder’s yard during the 1930s.

The rolling stock is either scratch-built or from modified kits and features some interesting wagons, carriages and locomotives. Part of the line runs along the road as a tramway and so requires the use of tram locomotives. The buildings are also scratch built using a variety of techniques.
