Go Loco Portable Miniature Railway
GLMR: The North East's Portable Miniature Railway Hire! - 𝒂𝒗𝒂𝒊𝒍𝒂𝒃𝒍𝒆 for events and more 🇬🇧
The portable railway was built during lockdown in early 2021, it opened in April of the same year.
The first event was held at Wheelbirks Parlour in Stocksfield. The opening was met with a great reception with local press releasing publications in the following weeks.
Our little railway was the first of its kind in the North-East, a true pop-up miniature railway which operates on a commercial scale - last year we operated a staggering 90+ days!
We are one of the leading portable railways in the country, we're known for our friendly & personable team, and our fresh outlook on what a miniature railway should be.
What we do
We are a fully insured 7 ¼” gauge portable miniature railway, with years of experience in operating miniature railways. As one of the largest commercial portable miniature railways in the country, 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 barriers to train brakes.
Our flagship locomotive!
A heritage style petrol/electric locomotive.
Due to its clever design, this locomotive allows for the driver to sit on-top.
Designed and partly constructed by esteemed engineer and designer Colin Edmondson.
Where we travel & requirements
We are based in Tyne and Wear, however we can travel across the country to deliver high quality events!
Important considerations include: space- we need at least 150ft in length and 10ft in width & barriers (in locations with general public). The portable track is 250ft in total, however we can supply more or less track depending on the event.

GLMR are a professional and fun set up which will make a welcome addition to any site or event. I've used them professionally and as a regular visitor at a pop up event and they are a fab team. Kids love it!
My children had such a lovely day today with the unlimited rides option. They really enjoyed chatting to the driver and finding out about the train too. It was a great addition to the garden centre visit and we look forward to seeing you again!
Go Loco Miniature Railway have been wonderful this week. It has been so lovely to welcome such an enthusiastic young man into our school. He's been superb with children and adults alike. I can't wait to welcome him back next year. Can highly recommend their train!
