We really wanted to visit Rail City and followed instructions from one of the comments here on TripAdvisor, but could not find the cafe! We kindly suggest to the owners to help people visit them ;) If the cafe is still open?!

I give it 4 stars just because it is an unusual cafe which hosts a mini display of a city with several rails onto which one train passes along (if you press the buttons). It would be much nicer and entertaining if trains were 3 or 4 running around at all times, rather than ONLY when pressing buttons!

Then this is the place to visit, although not the easiest place to find. A large detailed layout but unfortunately not many trains operating. Might have given it a higher score had the TGV been running.
Beer was good and reasonably priced.

One long wall of this establishment is taken up with a diorama, of railway tracks running through the countryside and various stations. And something is moving all the time although the hi-speed model never did. The trains are mini in size. There is no information about them or their model size. Adult or child you have to be an enthusiast to get the most from it. The beer selection is sparse, their coffee good. The ambiance rather garish. Its located in the same building where Luc Vanlaere performs on his harps so its a useful place to wait before his performance.

If you like model trains and a drink, maybe this is the place to visit. Bar and one of the largest automated model railways available. Further work has been done on this since the last visit.
