What is it like?
Our annual model railway exhibition and narrow gauge railway gala is an extremely popular event for children and adults alike. We always aim for that little bit extra, with traction engine trailer rides, music in the Organ Museum and a bus “special” on the Sunday the event really has earned the “plus” in the title!
Model Railways plus will take place over the whole weekend, Please note that the bus event will be Sunday.
A limited free connecting bus service will be available on both days. Timetables published below.
There is a good selection of hot or cold food for sale on site or you can bring a picnic, the car parking field has plenty of space to find a quiet spot. Well behaved dogs are welcome, but are not allowed in the organ museum.
