Can you help? Model Railway in need of modernising!

Our treasured model railway that has entertained boys and girls for generations is in need of restoring and refreshing.

Walhampton's Model Railway
Walhampton's Model Railway
Treasured over the years by generations of Walhampton pupils, our model railway, still tucked away in it's own room in the cellar, is in need of some TLC.

We are looking for model train enthusiasts, preferably locally, who would be willing to volunteer some time to restore the train track and surrounding landscape so that our pupils can continue to play with it for years to come.

Some of the trains are also a little worse for wear, so if you have any 00 guage digital trains that you would like to donate to the school, they would be very welcome.

If you can help in any way, then please do get in touch with Samantha Allen on 01590 613 300, s.allen@walhampton.com
