    Famous Trains is open to the public on all Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays from 11am to 4pm for 150 days each year. Opening first in April 2014, we welcomed our 30, OO 0th visitor last June. We are staffed entirely by unpaid volunteers.
    Over Easter we shall be open from Good Friday (special opening) through to Easter Monday. Our Chinley layout is becoming well-known as the largest OO-scale model railway in the East Midlands. At 60-feet long and up to 16feet wide, its four continuous main lines enable 16 or more trains to run, providing lots of variety for visitors to watch.
    There are several push-button operated features to add to interest.
    Darley Green model village is based on an imaginary Derbyshire village though visitors may recognise buildings from real places in the county. Our canal basin and Cromford-type model of a rope-worked incline are new additions.
    You can park in Markeaton Park's main car park, accessed from the Markeaton Island at the junction between the A38 from Burton and A52 from Ashbourne. Famous Trains is right near the car park.
