that runs for around 1/2 of a mile, worked with steam and diesel locomotives from Britain,
Belgium, Poland and South Africa. Most of our rolling stock is kept under cover in our large
shed that you are welcome to visit when we are running trains. You can also visit our ex

Birmingham to Bristol main line and our 16mm scale garden railway.
