  • Several networks are to be discovered: from the smallest, which fits in a Brie box, to the largest of 260 m2.
  • A unique opportunity to talk with enthusiasts, to participate in workshops to assemble locomotives, to drive model trains or to travel in a steam locomotive!
  • Saturday, May 18 from 10 am to 6 pm and Sunday, May 19 from 10 am to 7 pm.

The model making festival thinks about children and organizes for them various animations and workshops.

  • From 2 years old : "Bricks of fun". Workshop of 30 min. The toddlers manipulate LEGO trains thanks to a large fixed railway layout and a small modular layout. A static miniature train of great length is built with the public throughout the weekend.
  • From 7 years old : "Driving simulator". To discover the job of a train driver, children are asked to monitor signals, speed limits and manage passenger exchanges...
  • From 12 years old : Model & model making" Workshop of 1 hour. To discover the origin of the steam locomotive and understand the principle of its operation. Without tools or glue, the public assembles and takes away a model of an authentic wooden locomotive of type 230.
