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

We took our grandchildren, father in law and sister in law on the train and we enjoyed it. It's a couple of hours in total and you can get off at the other end and have a quick look around. There's not that much too see but you can have a cup of tea and there are toilet facility's if... More

We started our day out with lunch at the cafe, the staff were very friendly, they spent time talking to my little boy, asking him what he was looking forward to which was great. Do try the scones they are scrummy. My son was given a worksheet to fill in, asking questions like how many carriages the train had, what... More

We arrived to a delightful tree shaded station in a park. Everyone was friendly. The collection of engines is fascinating. The trip, even though the early part is in suburbs, is beautiful. The destination has more lovely engines, a sit-on railway for the kids and a lot about the history, in digestible chunks. Back at the start the café is... More

We took our 5 yr old grandson here, we all enjoyed it. Free car park with a park that had swings etc and playing fields adjacent to the car park. The day we visited a steam train was running. Could visit the workshops and speak to the guys working on various engineering tasks, there is a small shop to buy... More

Pleasant little train ride, took about 25 minutes to get from Page's park to Stonehenge works. Quite an entertaining ride as the line crosses a few roads & 2 people with flags had to stop the traffic each time. Had a 20 minute stop at Stonehenge to look around the shop & buy a biscuit or coffee. Shorter journey back... More

Nice engines and carriages but could get cramped if too many people turn up. Short trips through some countryside but mainly passes through housing estates. Friendly volunteers but limited shop.food was okay though.
