Model Village in Wicklow

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts


There was a chap who had a model railway in his private garden near Kilcoole on one of the roads from Newtown..... he used to let people in, sadly the house was sold and the new owner had no interest and the layout was dismantled, I think in the early 2000's

Here in Kilmac there is a 3.5inch track, a big circle on very nice pre-cast concrete arch system, built a long time ago and now disused, the current owner has left nature to take it over and it wont be around for much longer... such a pity!

Thanks for your replies Eoin. The setup I was thinking of was, for all intents in a field. There were models of notable buildings, including Trim Castle, Russborough House, the Obelisk on Killiney Hill. There was also a model railway but it doesn't look like 3 inch gauge, possibly O gauge. I'm attaching a couple of photos which might jog somebody's memory.
