Sadly, this outdoor railway had to be broken up after it had only just been completed when we were given notice to move out of Bletchley Park. It was scrapped prematurely as it could not be accommodated in our new facility.
The railway was redeveloped in 2010/11 and featured five tracks:
- 2 x ‘OO’
- 2 x ‘O’/’G’ dual gauge; one ‘O’/’G’ line is reserved for live steam only
- 1 x ‘O’ gauge finescale
Full details of the redevelopment project, led by David Lean, are available on the project web page.
The line was formally opened on 8 June 2011 by senior representatives from the model railway community:
- Simon Kohler – Hornby
- Paul Appleton – Ian Allan
- Ben Arnold – Peco
- Graham Hubbard – Bachmann UK
