Ride on the APT-P !


Mardyke Miniature Railways Ltd. 7¼" APT-P

Only one such set was built and it is now based at the Lappa Valley Railway near Newquay in Cornwall. The 7¼-inch gauge miniature woodland railway is approximately one-fifth of a mile long and is a circular ride running through a tunnel, round the Trevithick maze, past the nature pond and back to the main station area at East Wheal Rose.
