Recent Events

We have run a successful series of “First Sunday of the Month” open afternoons which were attended by many families who enjoyed steam train rides and watching model trains. Some children even got to control Thomas!

 

The Visit Santa By Train event on Saturday 8th December attracted many children, though the inclement weather did not help.

Many thanks to all members who helped out.

The White Horse Model Engineering and Garden Railway Show in September was enjoyed by several hundred visitors.  Modellers made good use of the trade stands to replenish and enhance their hobby.   Riding the rails behind a live steam locomotive was very popular with visitors of all ages.
