Description

Celebrating its 20th year, the Garden Railway 2017 theme is "In Motion" that will feature structures that incorporate movement in their construct.  Come and see a replica of the Morris water mill that has a wheel that rotates; discover a windmill with blades that turn; and catch (if you can) a Train Touch n GO! with a sensor activated botanical ‘pad’ that allows the train to operate.

Celebrating its 20th year, the Garden Railway 2017 theme is "In Motion" and will feature structures that incorporate movement in their construct. Visitors can view a replica of the Morris water mill that has a rotating wheel; discover a windmill with turning blades; and catch a Train Touch n Go! with a sensor-activated botanical “pad” that allows the train to operate.

With a changing theme each year, the display is a miniature world with a quarter mile track running through it, all set in the summer garden. It features loops and tunnels, bridges and trestles and all of the miniature buildings are created entirely of natural materials, each meticulously detailed with leaves, bark, vines and twigs. Logs and branches are also used to create unique tunnels and overhead trestles.  

On Wed. evenings in June, July and August, the venue is open until 8pm and the trains will run until 7:30pm.  Special weekends are planned throughout the summer, including Thomas the Tank Engine Week, Circus Week and other events.
