This is a OO9 model of the Leek and Manifold Railway, presuming it was built as a narrow gauge railway from Leek Brook Junction. Waterhouses becomes a passing station instead of an interchange and the railway is extended to Longnor, further along the Manifold valley from Hulme End.

It is also presumed that the railway did not close in 1934, but continued as goods only until taken over by BR and eventually preserved.
