Magic of Meccano comes to museum


VISITORS will be able to experience the magic of childhood toys at a new year event at Abbey Pumping Station Museum.

Meccano, Hornby model trains and Dinky toys will take centre stage at the event which takes place on Sunday, January 13, from 1pm to 5pm.

There will be a chance for younger visitors to discover and play with these classic technological toys for themselves. The museum's steam train will also be giving trips around the site.

Tickets cost £3 for adults, with accompanied children getting in free, though there is a small charge for train rides.
