This us so much more than a model railway. It is clearly a Labour of love. The chair lift up the mountain, the golf course, the scenes on platforms. Gardens, fields, workmen. It is worth every penny to see. There are no words to properly...More

interesting model train layouts. Mainly continental but full of unusual features. Entrance fee very reasonable. Well worth a visit.

I saw some critical reviews on here, presumably from those that take modelling very seriously, and felt I had to comment. Sure, it is a little muddled and tired in places, but it's fun! It's a large, super cool, model train set! :) It's a...More

As (model) railway enthusiasts we were pleased to find this railway display in Fort Victoria. The display is rather large but is a real mix of styles (German scenes and models alongside British railway scenes) and seems to have been put together at random. Attention...More

I love this place - it's probably not to the taste of an avid model railway lover or collector as it is a little muddled but it is well laid out with so many small details to see. Some people may just walk in, look...More

Hi, There is no fee for parking when we went. However, all the attractions have an entry fee. You can buy a "group" ticket that gives you a reduced price for entering 2 or 3 attractions or you can just visit the attraction... More
