The Engine Shed is a special interest group for autistic children and young people who like trains.

They can design and play with our huge Brio, Tomy and Hornby train sets in an inclusive, safe and relaxing environment.

The children are in charge. They design and run the Brio, Tomy and Hornby trains, with minimal supervision from the Engine Shed staff. We regularly have over 25 children attending Engine Shed and they are engaged and focused throughout the 2-hour session.

We run open days across London, and provide after-school clubs for special schools. We are also invited to events run by special needs groups, national museums, and heritage railways.

Please contact us to discuss how we might help your children to develop their skills in cooperation, teamwork, communication, and problem-solving.
