The LarMat Line runs around a portion of our garden, that bit which is least attractive from the point of view of planting flowers and the like. It starts from a point close to the children's play-shed (The Den) and runs up a border towards the house with a spur off to 'The Mound'. The main part of the track continues to a point 10 metres from the house and serves Kenilworth Airport. Total running length is 35 metres, three simultaneous trains can run (if you have a quick-thinking team on the signals and switches) and grade difference is 0.4 metre across various track sections.

'LarMat' is a contraction of our children's names, Lara and Matthew. Kenilworth Drive is our address, hence the airport and Denville station is the start-point. 'The Mound'? A small hillock which the line climbs to a tourist view-point!!

All traction is battery-powered, with trackside control posts much used and the original battery-system signals and modified tenders.
