Gainsborough Model Railway is one of the largest hand built model railways in 'O' gauge, depicting The East Coast Main Line from Kings Cross to Leeds Central.
This is no ordinary model railway, but a truly remarkable product of the model makers art. The building of the present railway commenced in 1953, and has now become one of the largest 'O' gauge model railways of its kind in the country.
Based on the East Coast Main Line from London Kings Cross to Leeds Central, the railway covers 2500 square feet, has over 1200 feet of main line track and needs ten operators.
Come and see authentic replicas of famous locomotives such as Flying Scotsman, Papyrus and Mallard, just three of the numerous locomotives used on this model to haul crack expresses. The West Riding Ltd and The Yorkshire Pullman are two of the many express trains depicted on the railway, along with many more mundane services, express freights, local freights, as well as local passenger services.
