This exhibition of stunning models, created solely from LEGO® bricks, charts the history of Britain from the Neolithic Stonehenge through to the supersonic age of Concorde.

The centrepiece of this amazing exhibition is an eight metre long model of Flying Scotsman, the world’s most famous steam locomotive, and three Pullman carriages!

 There's also an opportunity to join our workshops where both young, and young at heart, can build their very own LEGO steam locomotive and Pullman carriage. These are exclusive to the K&ESR and available at the special price of just £10 when booking online.

MANORS IN MINIATURE

Sunday 14th May


In partnership with the Foxcote Manor Society, the Kent and East Sussex Railway have booked the magnificent 'Foxcote Manor' to run throughout May on their idyllic line. This will be the largest engine ever to operate this railway.

On 14th May the railway will celebrate their shared passion between full size and miniature engineering by staging a display at Bodiam Station of 5” gauge model Manors from 'The 1/12th Scale Manor Locomotive Appreciation Group'.

It is planned that the following locomotives will be on display in Bodiam Station yard:

7801 Anthony Manor (frames only)

7808 Cookham Manor

7810 Draycott Manor

7816 Frilsham Manor

7817 Garsington Manor (possibly in steam on a rolling road)

7820 Dinmore Manor (part rebuild)

7823 Hook Norton Manor

7827 Lydham Manor

There will also be displays of other restoration projects including 4709 – ‘The Night Owl’.

Come and meet like-minded engineers from both the miniature and full size worlds, and perhaps bring your own Manor along for display (by prior arrangement through Paul Carpenter on 07958 250533).

Take a trip behind the full size Foxcote Manor to Bodiam Station and marvel at the mini Manors on display. Meet engineers from the miniature world before embarking on your return journey and enjoying Foxcote Manor in full steam as she barks up the 1 in 52 bank to arrive back at Tenterden Town Station.

Fares are available with a 10% discount for club members wishing to book in advance. Book your exclusive discounted model engineering club train travel tickets by clicking on the button below

This is a great way to share our passion with people of all ages, young and less young, and perhaps interest them in becoming involved in these wonderful worlds of steam!
