    If you mean the one that was just outside the main entrance of York station (by the entry to the car park under the train shed) then no that's been gone for a good few years now and has become the York Tap pub.

    I don't think there's been another one. It started its life as 'Rail Riders World' in the 1980s. I think I've been to it more in recent years. :lol:

    If it's the one I'm thinking of it's at Gainsborough now.

    It may have been a different pub. There are now two on York station.

    Is that the O gauge railway, located in an old school in Gainsborough? I thought that had been there for very many years, if not forever.

    They did relocate to Gainsborough, different to the O gauge one though. By all accounts they closed a couple of years ago.

    OK, I have been a couple of times to the O gauge one, it is amazing.

    Not quite Gainsborough but in Hemswell in the old RAF base. I did visit that once a few years ago and to be honest I found it underwhelming.
