At Fort Victoria, just outside Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight, we have an indoor model railway and shop which is open to the public most of the year. The railway has been at the Fort for the past twenty years, but under new ownership since 2006. The layouts have been completely altered although the controls of the Continental trains are still by computer programme. British layout not run by infra-red but by a unique bespoke computer system designed by Andrew Lambourn
The British and Continental trains weave their magic through villages, mountains, tunnels and factories, and rekindle many happy childhood memories for many of our visitors. There are working models, some operated by a push button system, whilst others are running all day. A circus and fairground, with working models, is an added attraction as it also has its own miniature railway.
Did you know that our trains running from Easter to October daily cover the equivalent distance from Portsmouth to Edinburgh? And on such small wheels!
