Model Railway

The Model Railway is now open.

Built by our own team of crack railway volunteers, the current Model Town railway layout continues to grow with new features and displays.  This year we have new touchless movement sensor controls to drive the trains and a surprise in the air. There are many lines to control including our Underground service,  with an ever changing line up of motive  power and stock. Thomas is on duty most days. 

 Look out too for the cliff railway and cable car. 

It maybe dark when you enter - we have a computer controlled lighting system with daytime, dusk, night time and dawn over a ten minute period.   Click here for more technical information on the lighting project

The layout features stock from GWR, Southern, Sodor and more modern British Rail times.  Complementing this is our display of historic railway poster and local railway history including the S & D and Castlemain Corkscrew that passed through Wimborne.
