Urgent News!


The Mini-Great Bass Rail Disaster!

Investigations are under way after a collision on our Model of Burton, taken from archives depicting October 1921, has left guests in shock at The National Brewery Centre. Was this the result of a signal failure caused by a wiring fault or was there a model sheep on the tracks?

The Bass Loco derailed this morning, one eye-witness Des McGonigle (Tour Guide) remains in shock and is being treated by the best of the best tea makers.

Thank goodness our team of Maintenance Volunteers, who will know exactly what to do, are all ready and equipped to get us back on track as soon as possible.


It must be recorded that no model animals or humans were harmed in the incident!


One of the many areas of opportunity for Volunteering here at The National Brewery Centre, don't you think?
