Birmingham’s newest tourist attraction, Wonderful World of Trains & Planes, is finalising Phase 1 of its development in preparation for its August 1 launch date.

The attraction offers a fun-filled adventure by train from the UK through France, to Germany, Switzerland, Canada, the US and Japan, with other countries coming on board at a later date.

Visitors can go back in time to 1831 and the first American train, move to 1890s France and watch the Impressionists painting on the Normandy coast; walk the red carpet in Grand Central Station in 1902 as you board the Twentieth Century Limited, America's greatest train or journey on the Super Chief to Los Angeles with Hollywood stars of the day.

Then right up to date on the Japanese Shinkansen, or France’s TGV.
