Wonderful World of Trains and Planes

An adventure of past, present and future

Please note: During school holidays we are open every day of the week

Come and visit the newest, most exciting visitor attraction in the heart of Birmingham, where you can journey by train from the UK to France, Germany, Canada and Japan - with Switzerland, the United States and Italy among the countries coming later.

Spend a little time in a sleepy seaside village in 1930s England before moving on to a 1960s town and take a brief look at war-time Germany before coming up to date on the TGV, Eurostar, ICE and the Japanese Shinkansen. See the great trains of the past - the Orient Express, Flying Scotsman, Mallard, Golden Arrow, the Royal Train, the Rheingold Express.

In Canada see the train snake around the mountains and past a lake, disturbing the local fishermen.

Then try your hands at the controls of a single-engined Cessna and, if you can land that safely, move on to a Boeing 737 or even a 747. You can even fly at low level down the Strip at Las Vegas.

Hurtle round our four-lane professional car-racing circuit - and when you're exhausted, take time out in our welcoming coffee shop. And we also have a fully-stocked model shop where you can buy all you need for your own model railway - plus planes, paints, cars and much more.

And for now, as a special bonus for modellers come and see how we are building it - a must for all enthusiasts. But hurry. Don't leave it too long.
