Our Last Running Day Of The Year!

We love our Running Days here at Brighton Toy and Model Museum. It’s unfortunate that we can’t put more on, but in order to preserve these valuable model trains, we’re only able to put Running Days on every so often, and when we do, it’s always a special occasion.

If you haven’t been to one of our Running Days before, it’s a chance to see many of our precious, rare model trains running around our purpose built diorama in the company of other rail fans and model train aficionados. The central area of the museum is normally kept behind Perspex in order to protect the exhibits, however, during the Running Day we take the barriers down so you can get a super view of the trains as they pull into and out of stations, and speed around the track, just as the makers, including Hornby, Marklin and many others intended.

Taking the acrylic screens down also means that you can get some great photography, without reflections, distortions or flare. If you’re a lover of old train sets, or vintage toys generally, this really is a pre-Christmas treat that’s perfect for you.

Admission is ten pounds for adults, five for children, but the price is halved for friends and patrons. Why not become a patron on the day and start enjoying the benefits of half price entry right away? As well as seeing our unique collection of trains, you’ll also, naturally, have full access to the museum so you can see all of our exhibits, from soft toys, Corgi and Matchbox cars, Meccano and their competitor construction kits as well as many other rare and fascinating toys from the past.

The trains will be running 11am to 1pm and from 2:30pm to 4:30pm on Saturday December 3rd, so put the date in your diary!
