Ridgeway Park's Model Railway



Ridgeway Park's Model Railway

The only miniature train railway in London.

Location: Coleman's Moor Lane, Chingford

Description: The Chingford and District Model Engineering Club is based here in Ridgeway Park.
The club seeks to promote all forms of model engineering and model making such as boats, planes, trains & static Models.

Virtually every Sunday Morning throughout the year you will find a group of members at the track finding something to do, if it's only having a cup of tea and a chat.

The club run the miniature railway which is open on Sunday afternoons from April to September and helps attract extremely large visitor numbers to the park in the summer months.

Disney founder Walt Disney was a very keen miniature railway enthusiast and had his own 71/4 inch miniature railway at his home in USA. One day while visiting London on business and as he had completed his work, he asked his chauffeur if he knew of any miniature railways in London. The chauffeur brought Walt Disney here and he drove trains around the track and allowed the press to take some photographs and had a good time.

When the public heard that Walt Disney was visiting the railway every body rushed over to see him, just as the Mayor of Chingford was about to open the celebration of 1954's Chingford Day.
