Brighton Toy Museum

I thought I should try and get a post in that didn’t mention Goodwoo… …O.

I was asked to take photos at a private event at Brighton Toy and Model Museum a few weeks ago. If you’ve not been there before they have huge layout of predominantly pre & post war ‘toy’ trains. They run it for the pubic on set days but, understandably, there are plastic screens to protect the exhibits. On a few occasions a year they take down the screens and run everything.

The trains stand about 5″ tall and are mostly metal giving them real presence.

Being a toy museum as much attention is paid to the ‘extra’ details as the trains. There are also lots of vintage arcade machines and all manor of toys.

But the stars are without doubt the big trains which pull 10 coach trains around with apparent ease.

It’s right in the centre of Brighton, under the station. Go and visit it http://www.brightontoymuseum.co.uk/
