Introducing Bachmann's Narrow Gauge range

It must not be forgotten that 2014 also has a more sombre significance, being the 100th anniversary of the start of World War One. The railways were of vital importance during the war, ferrying troops and supplies between Britain and the front line. Standard gauge railways did not stretch to the front lines and this is where the Narrow Gauge system was of vital importance.
