Mevagissey Model Railway

Children under 5 years now go FREE to this attraction!


Located in the heart of Mevagissey, and easily accessible from both south and mid Cornwall, this model railway is in Meadow St, off Polkirt Hill.


There is an OO gauge Main Layout, which has over 30 trains travelling through varied landscapes including town, country, seaside and even an Alpine Winter. A variety of trains run through highly detailed scenery - towns, a harbour with a film set, a wedding, China Clay hills, a Cornish tin mine, a maze, cycle race, engineering works, and much more.


Interactive buttons let you bring the models to life with lights, sound, and action. The trains are all visitor-operated, so children of all ages can have a go at driving a train, even the youngest who just have to press Thomas's Very Useful Button to see him appear with his coaches.


For those younger train enthusiasts there is also the 'Junior Junction' childrens railway which features Hornby Thomas The Tank Engine characters as well as a model circus.


The indoor Garden Railway even shows how you can transform your own garden to run large scale trains - and you can have a go at driving them yourself! The night is lit up with fun and action on our operating fairground scene and there are static displays of hundreds of superb locomotives and models too. Here you will also find an extensively stocked model shop with items for both the beginner and enthusiast and has one of the best displays of locomotives and rolling stock to be found anywhere. If trains are your thing - this is definitely worth a visit!


Notes: Polperro also has a model village
