The Engine Shed Project

What’s the Engine Shed?
The Engine Shed is a special interest group for children and young people with autism who like trains. They can play, talk and enjoy their interest in a welcoming, safe and relaxing environment – and their parents can talk in a supportive atmosphere. We’ve got loads of Hornby, Brio, Ertl and Tomy layouts to play with. There’s also a quiet corner with books and puzzles. We’re open at the Streatham Youth Centre off Conyers Road, Streatham SW16. It’s a short walk from Streatham and Streatham Common railway stations, and there are lots of bus routes on the Streatham High Road. Parking is also available in local streets.

Where: SYCT Streatham Youth Centre, 51 Conyer’s Road, Streatham SW16 6LS (Google maps:

When: Saturday 13 October, from 2 to 4pm.
How much: Free, although we ask for a donation towards hiring the venue.

Thanks again for all your great feedback from our opening day last month. We’ve now got a few *more* trains to add to the Brio, Tomy and Hornby sets, so there should be plenty for everyone.

Looking forward to seeing you again on Saturday 13th October, and please share this with other families who might be interested.
