“Great little steam railway - more for the toddlers”

Leighton Buzzard Railway
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Its still remarkable that this little railway runs through the centre of Leighton Buzzard, through industrial estates and housing estates. All proper steam enthusiasts running it, it needs support throughout the year but only now runs on specific days. Well worth a visit especially if you have small children

Unique in that half the trip is through a built up area. No other narrow gauge railway is like this! Lovely welcoming staff. Acceptable cafe - but it's nothing special. Well worth a ride - I would go again.

Went here in the winter, what an amazing little ride. All run by volunteers who do a great job. Very old fashioned and quaint. A great day out for everyone ( especially big kids like us)

A great little railway with an assortment of steam and diesel pulled trains which thanks to the dedication of the members has been improved over the years . The wooden built carriages, which have plain wooden seats, are well maintained.. One unusual attraction is being able to visit the engine sheds where the engines are maintained. Very friendly and helpful staff in the station buffet. Certainly worth a visit during the school holidays and at other times of the year.

History provided.
More prototypical than many preserved railways.
Something for everyone and plenty of information provided.
Good value for money and accesible being close to habitation.
Unusual in being within the urban environment that has, of course, extended since railway was operating.
