The Rowlands Castle Heritage Centre is now the proud owner of the award-winning model railway designed and built by Peter Goss. The model depicts The Green and Railway Station and yard at Rowlands Castle, in 1944 during the preparations for the Normandie D-Day Landings. The area was one of the major troop assembly and training points in southern England. The Solent TV video clip describes how the railway is the showpiece of a local Museum, and lets Peter Goss describe how the model came about in the first place. View the video below.
