Model railway Pempoul by Gordon and Maggie Gravett

This superb French model railway layout was built by Gordon and Maggie Gravett in 1:50 scale with 18.2 mm track gauge. The model train display is based on the now defunct Reséau Breton system in Brittany, northern France. This French railroad was a narrow gauge railway system with a length of nearly 425 kilometers around the city of Carhaix-Plouguer.

The narrow gauge system was operational until 1967. Then, it was one of the largest railway networks in narrow gauge in France. The model railroad layout, called Pempoul, presents a little village, a station and a railway junction. The model railway layout is so deceptively real that it was presented in the BBC TV show “The Joy of Train Sets”. Please, enjoy this masterpiece of model railroading.
