 Brief history of French Railways

Fascinating collection of SNCF Steam locomotive photographes - Mike Morrant Collection

Mini World Lyon - YouTube Channel

Inspired by Miniature Wunderland Hamburg, Mini World Lyon.  The project has taken over two years of construction and many more of planning.

Good news and a small delay

A local Leisure investment group has been following the project and has offered a better location in greater Lyon, that is served by the Metro and trams.  There are now direct links to the main stations and the airport at Lyon-Saint Exupéry.

The new location is Loisirs du Carré de Soie, à Vaulx-en-Velin 
The site and investment has allowed the team to increase the layout from 2,000m
2 to 4,000m2.
