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

They can play, talk and enjoy their interest in an inclusive, safe and relaxing environment – and their parents can talk in a supportive atmosphere.

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 30 children attending Engine Shed and they have been engaged and focused throughout the 2-hour session.

We run open days in South London, and birthday parties at your home or local venue. We also provide the Engine Shed to special schools, providing an engaging learning platform during the school day or as an after-school club.

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