Torcy is located in the Department of Seine - Maritime in the Haute Normandie, (Upper Normandy), Region of Northern France at the end of a single track branch off the line from Rouen to Dieppe. Torcy is a real place but the railway is completely fictitious.

The survival of the imaginary branch line is due, in the main, to a distribution depot set up to transfer goods arriving by rail to road vehicles for delivery to this area of northern France, the level of freight traffic is sufficiently healthy to require several trains a day. In addition, loaded trains of open wagons containing gravel from a quarry up the line, that only has access from the Torcy direction, enter the station area to reverse before departing to Sotteville yard in Rouen for onward dispatch.  

The station also survives and is served by a regular passenger service from Rouen operated by diesel powered push-pull trains and multiple units. There is a thrice daily through train to / from Paris and occasional steam hauled specials.

The period is 2005 - 8.

The layout is 6.9m (22 feet 6 inches) long by 0.6m (2 feet) wide, the total space required is 7.9m (26 feet) by 1.6m (5 feet).

The layout is DCC operated using the Lenz system.
