Model Railway Day

Model Railway Day

Details

In collaboration with our friends at the Braintree and Halstead Model Railway Club….we are delighted to host this great day of steam action and model railway displays.
There’ll be numerous model railway layouts in different gauges all around the museum and you can get a sneak preview of ‘Gosfield Junction’, on display for the very first time.

We’ll be running our historic steam locomotives for rides all day long and you can have a go at driving a diesel loco for just £10 with our ‘Taster for a Tenner’ offer, only available on event days.

Although the museum is virtually fully accessible, due to us being at a functioning railway station, visitors using wheel chairs will need the assistance of a carer to navigate the separate accessible entrance and security gate on the opposite side of the rail track.
