We're delighted to be welcoming Chris Vine, author of the charming 'Peter's Railway' books, back to the museum for the day. 'Peter's Railway' is an intriguing story about Peter and his Grandpa building and operating a miniature steam railway on a farm.

As well as reading excerpts from his work, Chris will be signing books and answering any questions you may have. Books are available for purchase on the day.

We're also pleased to have on display the award-winning Museum of Transport model railway. You'll be astounded by the detail of this 1.76 scale model which depicts a modern transport museum situated in the former docks of an English town.
