Abbeydale Miniature Railway

Abbeydale Miniature Railway aim to have at least one steam loco operating as well as 'diesels'. Light refreshments, ice cream, souvenirs etc. are usually on sale.

Additional Information

The 5" and 7¼" gauge ground level track is fully signalled and interlocked for added interest and passenger safety.

The elevated track caters for almost every gauge from 0 up to 7¼". All carriages are 7¼" gauge for stability.

There is a dual gauge 32mm/45mm 'Garden Railway' for steam or battery powered locos.

Visiting model engineers are warmly welcomed. Appropriate public liability insurance is needed. If bringing a steam loco or traction engine, a current boiler certificate is required. Passenger rolling stock is vacuum braked. Public running is intensive so you may prefer to visit on one of our club only days. Please contact Abbeydale Miniature Railway first if you intend visiting.

Visitors please note:- the tracks have a 30ft minimum radius so may not be suitable for certain locomotives.

There are clean toilet facilities, including disabled access and baby changing. A wheelchair accessible carriage is available on request. Admission is free, the railway fare is only £2.00 per person per ride. You are welcome to bring your own picnic but please take your litter home with you as there is no refuse collection service. Printed timetables are available for you to take home. Please park at your own risk in the field - access to the premises by vehicle is strictly limited to disabled badge holders and members of the Society.
