Model Railway
Kids are will love to visit Dessie's model railway, where they can try their hand at driving everything from Thomas and Percy to the latest Irish Rail locomotives.

The model railway room can be found at the end of the main station building at Downpatrick, beside the path to the Carriage Gallery.

Children love to watch Thomas & Friends, as well as some more traditional model locomotives, racing round the track, and for a small donation your kids can have a go at the controls as well. You can even drive model versions of some of the diesel locomotives you can see outside in the yard, and take a train to the model version of Inch Abbey down the branchline!
