Welcome to Gainsborough Model Railway, we have hand built one of the largest model railways in 'O' gauge, depicting The East Coast Main Line from Kings Cross to Leeds Central.

This is no ordinary model railway, but a truly remarkable product of the model makers art.

The building of the present railway commenced in 1953, and has now become one of the largest 'O' gauge model railways of its kind in the country.

Based on the East Coast Main Line from London Kings Cross to Leeds Central, the railway covers 2500 square feet, has over 1200 feet of main line track and needs ten operators.

Please explore our site to see more details of this great model railway.
