A guide to the operation, construction and maintenance of the Bekonscot Model Railway from the 1990s. Not much has changed – the railway is a bit larger now and we’ve more trains. But the principles remain the same. You’ll see how we clean the tracks, run the stock – and see a driver’s eye view of part of the circuit. Some colour fading on this (sorry!) but we’re working to restore the tape properly. More info at http://www.bekonscot.co.uk
Bekonscot is the world's oldest true model village - having opened in 1929 in Beaconsfield, England. We're still here now, having probably more fun than we should whilst at work. It's a super place to come with the family - we're only a few miles outside London and near the M25 and M40 motorways. Come over, see our model trains, castles and towns - and have a nice cup of tea.
