Fort Victoria Model Railway

Welcome to Fort Victoria Model Railways

At Fort Victoria, just outside Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight, we have an indoor model railway and shop which is open to the public most of the year. The railway has been at the Fort for twenty years, and under the current management since 2006. The layouts have been completely altered although the controls of the Continental trains are still by computer programme. A new British layout is run by a unique bespoke computer system designed by Andrew Lambourne.

The British and Continental trains weave their magic through villages, mountains, tunnels and factories, and rekindle many happy childhood memories for many of our visitors. There are working models, some operated by a push button system, whilst others are running all day. A circus and fairground, with working models, is an added attraction as it also has its own miniature railway.

Did you know that our trains running from Easter to October daily cover the equivalent distance from Portsmouth to Edinburgh? And on such small wheels!

The British layout is now complete after much discussion and hard work, although as with all model railway layouts, things can be added to or altered. Imagination plays an all-important part! Our ambition was to make a layout that would be a “colourful, living and breathing” exhibition, suitable for all age groups and giving an insight into the fun that can be achieved from a model railway.
