Like the TARDIS, this place seems much bigger on the inside. Once in you find the amazing modem railway that seemingly runs for miles and miles through perfectly made little towns and villages. As the trains run around you can also look at the cleverly put together scenes of little people set up in the tiny streets! (Check out the poor pedestrian in the first town who's been hit by a DHL van while tiny little onlookers gather around to watch!). Everything is so clever. So much effort has been put into this. Well worth the little over £4 to get in, especially if it's a cold and rainy day nearby. (Very well kept public toilets are nearby too)

We had seen this for a few years when visiting the island but hadn’t visited until this week as we had heard that it was closing in a couple of weeks. The layouts are certainly a labour of love and clearly took many thousands of hours to complete. The spot the figure quiz was also interesting, but overall the layouts did look a bit sorry for themselves and the building was damp and cold, I guess the owners are running it down as it is the final few weeks, which is a pity. In its heyday it may have been a spectacular attraction but is sadly a shadow of its former self now. Still a good visit if you’re into this sort of thing, worth seeing prior to closure if you’re in the area.

Seen as there are no Model Railways where we live we decided to check out Fort Victoria Model Railway while on holiday and although we did find it initially difficult to spot we found it after seeing the big yellow flags, and it is a lot more impressive and intricate than I thought, there has clearly been a lot of time, care and dedication put into the assembly and running of all the little train routes and their environments, I especially liked the way some of the houses lit up, it made it feel alive. I can only imagine how many hours of work were put into this place and, as there aren’t many places like this, I hope it continues to remain open to the public for years to come.

We enjoyed our visit to see the many layouts on show. They are heavily biased towards European displays and the whole thing could do with a good clean. Sadly the owners are trying to sell the business.
