Wingfield Station Goods Shed - exciting first tenant

We have some exciting news about our first tenant at Wingfield Station.


On completion of restoration, the Goods Shed (the building adjacent to the station - sometimes referred to as the Parcel Shed) is to house a new station visitor centre.


Opening in April 2024 the centre is going to feature:


• A working scale model of Wingfield station and goods yard set in 1947 - please see the photos of the model, which is currently under construction • Special themed operating days on the model railway such as famous British trains, luxury trains, Christmas trains and wartime trains • Display boards, photographs and artefacts of station life • Small cafe serving hot and cold drinks plus snacks • Toilet facilities • Souvenir shop


The centre is fully accessible and is being funded and run as a charity by local volunteers.


For further information about the centre, please contact John Abbott: wingfieldstation1947@gmail.com


A website for the centre is currently being developed, and there will also be a chance to see the model railway as part of our grand opening weekend in October.


More details on our launch programme coming very soon along with details for businesses/organisations who are interested in the rental of the Station building.


We can't wait to see what John and his team create in this space.
