We are hosting five model railway exhibitions around the county this summer. These exhibitions are not only for railway enthusiasts but are also fun for all the family. Working models of Donegal Town and Letterkenny are just two of our many layouts. We also have a large working display of 75 year-old Hornby Tinplate ‘O’ Gauge and also a 7¼ inch gauge ride-on for children. As well as this we have a wide range of books, DVDs and children’s toys for sale.
