The mainline comprises of two circular routes extending to some 1 1/2 kilometres, there are numerous sidings and passing loops, two stations and a small halt, two unloading bays that can accommodate most locomotives and two turntables and steaming areas.

The track is mainly winding through woodland, with cuttings and embankments, a couple of bridges over ponds and a small tunnel. There are some fairly straight lengths and gradients up to 1:60 its makes interesting driving and pleasant views for the passengers. The steam vehicle crosses the line in three places and can ferry people to Ducks End station.
