Grand Central train

A 4 metre replica of a Grand Central train! This project, for Arriva-owned Grand Central, was a real challenge! The refurbished trains were modelled inside and out to produce a model 4 m long. As with my Metro train in 2017, half was built by kids using my instructions, this time at the National Children's Museum Eureka! in Halifax. The model consists of two carriages, the front end with driver's cab, and the buffet carriage.

The model is kept in York, but will hopefully make appearances from time to time.
