Sat November 25 - Train Running Day, 'Time to Change'

'Time to Change' poster

Our autumn Train Running Event took place on Saturday November 25.

Members of the Train Collectors' Society were in the Museum running their own trains (in addition to all of our own vintage trains), making it a truly special event for people of all ages.

The idea was to make 'Time to Change' reflect that period when the railways were grouped in 1923. The huge variety of locomotives and rolling stock running on our spectacular '00' and '0' gauge layouts for this special event was a sheer delight.
