Friendly people sharing their hobby. Some lovely little trains to ride behind and some even smaller ones to watch (every other week).

Small children will love this little railway tucked away in the Littledown sports centre grounds. Added bonus is large park, play equipment for all ages, ponds with ducks etc & free parking. Toilets & cafe in sports centre. Good picnic spot in summer & never seems busy.

My little kiddies loved it here. Decent length of a ride at an affordable price for families. Run by some very keen steam enthusiasts.
