It is a pity the ride is mainly through housing estates. The stop at the works should be longer to allow time in the museum.

A fabulous family experience, approx. 40 minutes each way. With a short stop at the other end to have a look around. Trains are brilliant and I believe the staff are volounteers.

I visited on an events day, because I read that it was quite boring on a normal day. Parking is easy, right next to the station 'shed' and cafe. The cafe is the typical small railway cafe but the prices are quite high, with £1.95 for a hot drink being nearer to high street prices than the usual cafe price,... More

A nice summer train ride. I wouldn't recommend during bad weather as the carriages are all open. They could make it non smoking- my only complaint! Who enjoys sucking in someone else's fag smoke- yum- esp when my carriage was full of young children including my poor baby who had smoke blown directly in her face. The stop/start of the... More

We really enjoyed this trip. A simple place to visit and surrounded by parkland, including swings etc, allowed the small legged people to run around prior to going on the train. It took a little while to explain to the 8 year old, that trains used to be powered by steam, but once she understood she became fascinated. The nostalgic... More

An amazingly good railway. Excellent number of unusual locomotives including a "coffee pot", which still runs on special days in tandem with other locos. You don't often get to see so many "work horse"engines from quarries and other industrial sites, very interesting. QAlso good fun for families as the ride has to stop at 4 crossroads where the guards get... More

We visited the Leighton Buzzard railway on a lovely sunny Sunday. We had time to look around the sheds before our trip and got to see all of the scaled down steam engines. Our outward journey was by diesel and the inward by steam. The halfway stopover was really good a we got a chance to meet some of the... More
