Escalation to the Higher Lockdown Tiers

With nearly all of the UK, including Derby, now escalated to the higher Corona-Virus Lockdown Tiers (4, 5 and above), the Famous Trains model railway centre will have to remain closed.

While this is obviously necessary to protect the NHS and residents of Derby, it doesn't help our wish to reopen our model railway building. People are not allowed to mix outside their "bubbles". Indoor heritage venues are not allowed to open.

We are so sorry. We look forward to better times as 2021 eventually gets warmer and our vaccines take hold and chase away those bugs.

Watch this space for more positive news later on in the new year!
