What we do.

We are a fully insured 7 ¼” gauge portable miniature railway, with years of experience in operating miniature railways. As the only portable miniature railway hire in the North East, we can offer visitors an unrivalled experience on this unique attraction, conjuring feelings of nostalgia through our heritage style locomotives which are loved by adults and children alike.

As part of a tight-knit community of portable miniature railways around the country, we set a high standard for quality in miniature railway safety and enjoyment. We follow all HSE guidelines and have full risk assessments and operations guides, covering everything from train brakes to Covid-19.
