    This weekend we are adding a special sale of good condition, used railway books. Eight model railways of gauges between Z and 3 will be operating throughout the weekend. The Famous Trains model railway building is in Markeaton Park, Derby, alongside the main car park that is accessed directly off the Derby Ring Road at the Junction of the A38 from Burton with the A52 from Ashbourne

    Our spectacular OO-scale Chinley model railway will be operating. This is 60feet long with up to twenty trains cycling through a scale model of the former junction station in mid-Derbyshire. Visitors can seek out odd features that may be seen on the big layout, or might be part-hidden on the one with a Hogwarts Castle model dominating the scene. Narrow gauge fans may enjoy the 7mm scale layout depicting a museum layout based loosely on the Ashover Railway. Young people (and grandparents) enjoy oerating trains on our Hornby-Dublo table-top layout. There is so much more to see, and enough to engross people of all ages.

    When you come, don't use the Mundy Play Centre car park - it is a long walk from there to Famous Trains. Our building is not near the nearest postcode! Use the south car park off the A38 at Markeaton Island.
