    Kevin, from Ryhope, Sunderland, has already opened a Diddlys' railway in Bognor Regis, which now pulls in 85,000 visitors a year.

    The dad-of-three plans to build one on his native Wearside, after drawing up plans for the Riverside.

    He said: "I used to go there as a kid, we used to pack up a picnic and spend the day down there. I can still remember it now.

    "What I am planning will be open all-year around, with special events at times like Hallowe'en and Christmas. The idea is to have one railway in the South and one in the North.

    It's well known if your a Cure fan (like me) that Robert Smith lives in Bognor Regis. Great place to go if your a big fan of The Cure just to soak up the atmosphere of being in the town that Robert Smith chose to live in and wonder what he sees in the place!!
