Elm Park is a fictitious areas of south-east London served by a spur off the old L&SER mainline from Victoria.

The station was originally on a through line which reduced to single track as it passed through a short tunnel, but was cut back after World War II and is now operated as a terminus with run-round facilities.

A small general freight yard and a lino factory remain in use and are rail served. Passenger services are operated by 2 or 3 car electric trains. Freight services are mainly trip workings handled by Class 33 locomotives, although the occasional Class 73 sometimes can make an appearance.

The layout is 12 feet by 2 feet, the track being hand-built using C&L components. Buildings are mainly scratch-built using plastic moulded sheets on hardboard backing.

The period modelled is the late 1960s, which allows us to run both green and blue diesels.
