The Engine Shed provides all the track, engines, carriages, wagons and controllers.



  • Brio: Wooden trains and tracks, with magnetic couplings to join locomotives, carriages and wagons together. Some of these trains are battery-powered with simple remote-controls.
  • Tomy: Plastic trains and tracks, based on the “Thomas the Tank Engine” characters. All locomotives are battery-powered with simple on/off switches for the children to operate.
  • Hornby: Trains, carriages and wagons operated by an electric controller. These are more fragile than the other trains, and the track needs to be set up in advance.

All our trains are checked for each session, and comply with safety regulations. All the Hornby controllers are electrically tested and inspected, with the trains working on a safe 12V power supply to the tracks.
