Railway ChristmasUnder the Christmas tree, there will be a model electric train which will help you into the Christmas spirit and entice you to visit our model train room where you will find two operating layouts. Children can then marvel while listening to the railway tale of Peter the Hogger presented at 1:30 p.m.
in one of our baggage cars redecorated with Christmas colours. Then along with their parents or grandparents, children can visit our Craft Workshop at 11:30 a.m., 2p.m. and 3 p.m.where they can create their own Christmas tree decoration.
