Model Railway

We've got several examples of model railways, including 'O' gauge and 'OO' gauge.

All year round
Suitable for all ages

Our three model railways have something to offer modellers of all ages. In Great Hall, adjacent to the Shinkansen bullet train is our main 'O' gauge display. This was built by our own technicians in 1983 and has had two significant upgrades in its life, including the installation of a wider and more accessible viewing platform for wheelchairs users.

There is also a Hornby 'OO' gauge display in the foyer of our City Entrance, and a Bachmann 'OO' gauge display near the Chinese KF-7 Locomotive in Great Hall.
