TRAIN RUNNING EVENT WITH A 'CONTINENTAL' THEME!

DEC 1st - TRAIN RUNNING EVENT WITH A 'CONTINENTAL' THEME!


Numerous rare French trains made the rounds on our beautiful 0 gauge and 00 gauge layouts throughout the day.

Visitors to the Museum celebrated with chocolate cake and bubbly as the newly restored locomotive, 'La Chocolat Nord' made her first run since 1939 after being brought back to life by Chris Littledale, the Museum Director over the last 2 years.

Striped shirts and french moustaches added to the fun as well as a live 'sound show', recreating the sounds of a French railway station. It was definitely a day of fun and entertainment for visitors of all ages.
