Here are the Engine Shed events for the next few months:

Engine Shed @ NAS Lambeth “Family Time” event @ Livity School
Aug 28 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

We’re bringing our trains to NAS Lambeth’s “Family Time” event at Livity School in Streatham.

We’ll have our usual Brio and Tomy train sets for the children to build and play with.


Engine Shed @ Skylarks in Twickenham #2 @ Crossway (Twickenham)
Aug 30 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

We’re taking our Brio and Tomy train sets to Skylarks activity session in Twickenham. We’ll be providing trains to play with on the floor and on table tops, so that the activity is accessible to wheelchair users.

Tickets are free but *must* be booked in advance via the Skylarks website as places are limited:

Engine Shed – Streatham: September open day @ SYCT Streatham Youth Centre
Sep 14 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

The Engine Shed is a special interest group for children and young people with autism who like trains. They can play, talk and enjoy their interest in a welcoming, safe and relaxing environment – and their parents can talk in a supportive atmosphere.

We’ve got loads of Hornby, Brio, Ertl and Tomy layouts to play with. There’s also a quiet corner with books and puzzles.

We’re at the Streatham Youth Centre off Conyers Road, SW16. It’s a short walk from Streatham and Streatham Common railway stations, or lots of bus routes on the Streatham High Road. There is parking available in local streets.

We ask for a £5 donation on the door to cover the cost of venue hire and wear and tear on the trains.
