Reading the review from the person who stated that they last paid £2.50 per adult for the train ride when was this 20 to 30 years ago. I think you need to get up to date. We have been to this railway many times and it is great value.

We all love the LB railway, we have took our kids and now grandkids. But the prices charged are horrendous. £10 per adult is far too much to charge. Not long ago it was £2.50 per adult fare. We ended up looking at shop, bought couple f bits for kids then went to the park next door. Disappointed with this.

What a great little railway this is. The station at Pages park is charming with its leafy canopy and well stocked, accessible engine shed. The journey is different from the norm as the loco's whistle is blasted on a frequent basis when approaching the numerous footpaths and the train stopping at road crossings to allow the crew to flag the...

We visited on a hot Wednesday 24th of August with our two Grandchildren, bought our tickets for the 2 o/c train ride from the lovely new building and then went to the cafe. We had a very enjoyable lunch, friendly and helpful people. The boys decided to sit in the open carriage which was lovely chugging along with the breeze... More

I took my 2 1/2 year old son on the train today, he absolutely loved it, he was so excited seeing the engine coming out of the shed and approaching the platform. There were options of three different types of carriage, enclosed, semi open and open. The carriages are quite tight for space and not easily accessed for those with... More

We thought it would be good to try out this local attraction with family visits in mind. The booking staff were friendly and the guard was dressed very smartly as we stepped on board train 778 today. The train whistled intermittently to the delight of small fellow-travellers, and stopped every so often so that 2 volunteers could stop traffic with... More

Summer holiday fun, a trip on the much loved Leighton Buzzard Narrow Gauge Railway. Pleased to see the new station building which is nearing completion and is already open to the public. The facilities are much improved. Wending our way through the outskirts of Leighton is quite relaxing, past Vandyke School and out through the fields is a joy. People... More

Three seniors travelled yesterday, the booking volunteer was very slow, 12 minutes to process 10 customers. The train was full and 4 people did not travel it needed a bit more organisation, a bit more communication between guard and booking staff and two on the bookings counter.Very helpful and pleasant ladies at the terminus had a cup of coffee and...

Thanks for the review and glad you enjoyed your day. The delays in booking were caused by an unrequired Windows upgrade corrupting our till settings rather than our volunteers. Hopefully this has has now been cured. We were very grateful to the family of 4 who kindly volunteered to go on the next train, but it does emphasise the value... More
