Toy Stories

The Toy Museum. is situated in the tunnel underneath Brighton Station. It is

a wonderland of period children’s toys.

Not only for children! The museum boasts an eclectic, electric mix, mostly

from the 1950’s.which will also appeal to adults especially those who were young then.

For a short time, and a few pounds one can revel in a golden period of life

before Lego; computers games and colour tv channels became the norm. You will

see another age bought to life.

The main part of the exhibits are a grand model railway this is in two parts

joined together by a tunnel and each half depicts a different model of

environmental scenery.

Several model trains, HO gauge (I think they are), programmed to work,

simultaneously-pulling into stations and traversing the model countryside. It

will especially appeal to those who had a model railway of their own and longed for a bigger track.

Other exhibits include a dream Meccano model, and other mechanical working

Objects, joined together by tiny nuts and bolts ; Lotts Bricks and a large

collection of model boats and (Dinky) cars.

This is the stuff that dreams are made of, rather like an imaginary dream

factory, so enjoy the visit.
