The Only Steam Working Public 9 1/2 inch gauge railway in the UK! 


Currently the only public, steam working 9 1/2 inch gauge railway in the UK, Lakeshore Railroad was first opened in 1972 and is still going strong to this day! Running for just under a third of a mile round the boating lake, the tracks meander through the trees and over the level crossings before arriving back at the station.

A café' can also be enjoyed on site with what is quoted as "the best view seen from a café'" due to the large open viewing of the train running by.

Open in excess of 200 days a year, do come and have a trip whether your young or just young at heart!

Do enjoy our website, more in depth detail can be found in the enthusiasts section but don't worry, if you can't find something that you want to know, do ask, we don't bite!

As The Autumn Winds Blow

Although we are still experiencing the last of summer's afterglow, the leaves are beginning to fall and days shortening; truly marking the start of autumn. As we move back into the warmth of the workshop to progress this year's long list of jobs, the railway has returned to a weekend only service (weather providing as always) until the Autumn Half Term where we return, albeit briefly, to a daily service.
