The Rowtor Target Railway, situated in the middle of nowhere on Dartmoor. The layout is a dumb bell shape with a two lane shed at one end, 4 sets of points and i would estimate just over 500 yards of track, all of which seems to be in remarkable condition considering the harsh conditions up there on the moor. The train would be set on its way and would be unmanned, and soldiers would us the train as a target to shoot at

I believe that the loco is still in the engine shed

Well worth a visit









The last one shows the abutments from where the soldiers shot at the train,the track runs along the ridge at the top of the picture and the engine shed is on the right
