This is a G Scale Model Railway which attracts the interest of all ages. It has been constructed with LGB track track and runs a selection of LGB locomotives and rolling stock.
As all railway modelers know a model railway hardly ever gets finished, scenery can take forever and there is always some little item that can be added. Construction of the scenic framework and track-bed commenced at the end of August 2001 and the layout went into operation in its basic form at the first public open day of the following year. All went well, and the trains all preformed as expected. There were very few disasters, just a couple of derailments due to excited little fingers and one young lad who decided to wash his hands is the river.
All in all it was well received and has become a worthy attraction.
After making the basic railway operational we carried out a continual program of improvements, with the addition of buildings, a mountain section with cable car and hot air balloon. A large extension was added during the winter period 2005/6 allowing for additions of a rack railway, tramway, a funicular and wood yard.
Look out for many novel features. See how many you can find. Talk to our friendly operators and find out if you spotted them all.
Fellow railway modelers are welcome to spend a while chatting to our modelers who will be only too pleased to tell you all about the on going construction of this fantastic model.
