One is the overhead mezzanine control centre, that can accommodate up to 6 "engineers" at one time to control the workings of their trains. From their overhead vantage point, looking out over the the multiple track layouts, they are able to operate the trains remotely, including having them switch tracks, reverse into sidings, remotely hook up to and unhook rail cars when making up a freight train and stop at stations - in short, everything real trains would be doing. Most model train museums are only able to have their trains run on a continuous loop. The second feature is the night scene - this is without compare - the "engineers" slowly dim the lights in the museum building until they are completely shut off, all the while slowly illuminating the many lights that come on in the dozens of miniature buildings, homes and shops that comprise the entire model layout.
Not only do lights come on each of the locomotives, but with an incredible added touch of authenticity, the many passenger rail cars become illuminated from inside their rail cars and passengers etc, can be seen through the darkness. Both diesel and steam locomotives make up the trains running on the tracks. The steam locomotives are provided with the authentic puffing sounds of actual operating steam engines. As many times as you may view a section of the train layout, each time you return to that area you will find other detail that you missed the previous time.
The attention to detail - and realism - by the club members, is beyond compare. It is impossible to describe - one has to experience it. I would also mention that on our way out we purchased one of the video's of the model train layout in operation and found it to be very professionally filmed and narrated. It also contained detail in the villages, buildings, vehicles,etc that we missed during our visit. Having been part of a railway family during the steam era, I can only commend all the members on their outstanding depiction of railway life and operations.
You have done a fantastic job in presenting this overview. Not only was it genuinely appreciated, but we will be back to see it once again. Oh yes, the museum is set in a lovely secluded spot, next to trees and a waterway, with loads of free parking. Visit this museum - even if you are not a rail buff - you surely won't be disappointed.

The DC current that flows through it will pull you in and not let go until the emergency services are able to switch the power off. Nearly half of the UK rail network is now electrified — and more than 30 per cent uses a third rail to power the train. The only way to avoid stepping on this hidden danger is not to step on the track.
