Our Chinley model railway is the biggest OO-Scale model railway in the East Midlands. It leads to the imaginary village terminus at Darley Green with its highly-Detailed hillside village. There is also a typical Derbyshire canal basin and Cromford-Type inclined plane. There is a static Hornby-Dublo table-Top railway, and there are other layouts of various gauges to attract visitors. We are also planning a sale of good condition secondhand railway books at very much reduced prices.|
