Model Railway

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 there are seven tracks to control, including the new UNDERGROUND line, 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.
