Activity Idea: Model railway

Every school boy’s dream – to have an outdoor model railway!
 

The setting up of a (potentially costly) scale railway is probably best left to the specialist or enthusiast, but may provide an original visitor attraction in a woodland setting. Clearly the use of steam or oil-based products in a wood will require careful risk assessment. Planning permission may required.
