Overview

The Society operates a miniature railway in Abbotsfield Park since 1948 at Chassen Road, Flixton, in the Borough of Trafford, Manchester. We run every Sunday throughout the year except Christmas Day. And some Banh Holidays. Weather permitting. The railway is a continuous circuit of 2200 feet (670 metres) of raised track comprising both 3 1/2" and 5" gauges. It is one of the largest elevated tracks in the country. The price of a ride is 30p per adult or child.

We go to this park regularly on Sundays specifically to use the amazing little trains. The guys who run it are so lovely, and 30p a go is the best value ever!

Thank you HungaryHopper for your review. We have put many requests to the local authorities for public toilets, but unsuccessful. There is a ice cream van that attends most Sundays. We look forward to seeing you again.
