The man who first put steam engines on rails was a tall, strong Cornishman described by his schoolmaster as “obstinate and inattentive”. On February 21, 1804, Trevithick’s pioneering engine hauled 10 tons of iron and 70 men nearly ten miles from Penydarren, at a speed of five miles-per-hour, winning the railway’s owner a 500 guinea bet into the bargain. Perhaps because it was the birthplace, Britain can boast more railway attractions per square mile than any other country. But it is North East England that is known as the birthplace of railways for here, around Newcastle, the world’s first tramways were laid and, later, the world’s first public railway between Stockton and Darlington steamed into life. At nearby Beamish, the open-air museum of North Country Life – where the past is brought magically to life – there’s an opportunity to see one of the earliest railways re-created.
A model train passes over a replica of post war State Street in Schenectady as part of the large, highly detailed HO Scale layout of the New York Central Railroad track from Rensselaer to Amsterdam in the basement of Jim Cesare of Niskayuna. An assignment this week took me to Jim Cesare’s Niskayuna home where he was hosting rail buffs from around the country in town for the weekend for the NY Central System Historical Society’s annual convention. K McGrath: Fantastic photos and narrative from my friend and consummate professional, Lori Van Buren!


Take a journey through our superb model railway exhibition, all housed in our standard gauge coaches. I thought my older boy would love to see the moving trains but he happened to be more into the cookies but he kept me in great company in seeing the train show. Richard Trevithick (1771-1833), who learnt his craft in Cornish tin mines, built his “Penydarren tram road engine” for a line in South Wales whose primitive wagons were pulled, slowly and laboriously, by horses.
He was 20 years ahead of his time – Stephenson’s “Rocket” was not even on the drawing board but Trevithick’s engines were seen as little more than a novelty.
The figures are impressive: more than 100 heritage railways and 60 steam museum centres are home to 700 operational engines, steamed-up by an army of 23,000 enthusiastic volunteers and offering everyone the chance to savour a bygone age by riding on a lovingly preserved train.
Though small in stature, these narrow-gauge lines are real working railways, originally built to haul slate and other minerals out of the mountains, but now a wonderful way for visitors to admire the scenery, which is breathtaking. Feel the wind – and steam – in your hair as you travel in open carriages behind a working replica of a pioneering engine such as Stephenson’s Locomotion No.1, built in 1825. Jim’s model details the NY Central tracks of the 1930’s and 40’s from Amsterdam to Rensselaer and I can vouch for its accuracy as I immediately recognized my home town of Schenectady. Experience the delights of a miniature world with 14 layouts and 40 trains in motion.  Press the buttons to make the trains go! I enjoyed the model train show very much and the museum has great display of history and artifacts related to train and railway operation.I can't wait to bring my younger boy to see it on June 1st as the weekly opening will not have 15 model trains replica of new and old trains running in the track for display for the public to enjoy.


There are eight lines to choose from and one, the Ffestiniog Railway, is the oldest of its kind in the world. Part of Manchester’s Museum of Science and Industry is situated in the world’s oldest passenger station; and the ‘Thinktank’ museum in Birmingham contains the world’s oldest active steam engine, designed by James Watt in 1778. I came along a little later than steam engines but that view of State Street is right out of my childhood. A series of I spys encourages the visitor to explore the humour and intricacies of the layouts.
My younger boy was sick again in the weekend; otherwise, he would have a blast with the moving trains like myself. My older boy loves to play with things and he is not someone enjoying things that he can't touch but my younger boy are mellow like me in observation with great appreciation to things we see.
