Peterborough’s Railworld tourist attraction is closed for winter, its army of dedicated volunteers are still active, working away to improve the facility.
A number of volunteers are extending the Garden Railway while others will be working on the wildlife haven/habitat and keeping the outside area litter free, at the attraction just off the Oundle Road.
It’s a far cry from its creation 30 years ago, pictured below left.
Members of Railworld’s new group FACET will be actively improving and planting the March/Cambridge Line railway embankment at the site.
They are also building the Railworld variable speed Wind Tunnel.
Here, visitors will able to control the storm force winds to drive a wind turbine and see how it generates electricity.
