Martlet Road represents an intermediate station on an imaginary cross-country branch somewhere in Somerset. It serves the sleepy village of Martlet, which is, inevitably, a mile or two distant from the railway. The line lies on the old LSWR, but the period modelled represents the latter days of steam on BR, when perhaps both ex-SR and GWR locomotives could be seen working here. Limited goods facilities are provided, including a cattle dock and goods shed.
A martlet is the heraldic bird depicted on the arms of the County of West Sussex, where I now live.
