For many years this 5” gauge model of the Inter-city 125 high speed train was the only train at Cockington Green. Manufactured by Doug Sarah & Bill Rose from plans supplied by British Rail, it has been in continuous operation since 1979. We estimate it travels approximately 3500 kilometres per year, and is powered through the aluminium rails by two 12V motors. Our train is made out of fibreglass and is very similar to the XPT that runs in NSW.
Maintenance on our train is regular as it is one of the very popular interactive displays we have here.
