The model railway layout is set in southern Sweden, on the shores of Lake Vättern in Västergötland. It is the lakeside terminus of the “Ulvaryd Mjölltorp Railway Line” (Ulvaryd-Mjölltorp Järnväg), a narrow gauge railway connected the small lakeside town of Ulvaryd with the main line from Skövde to Karlsborg. These Swedish railway lines were built in the early 20th century. The narrow gauge lines existed until the 1950s. All are now closed. The model railroad layout made by Charles Insley in HO scale is fictitious.
