A dream into reality

Patrick set the railway up during lockdown at the age of 17, and carrying passengers for the first time the following year at a number of events in 2021. We've spent years perfecting our railway, enabling us to expand quickly and efficiently - operating on a national scale.

In 2022, we opened our permanent railway in Alnwick, Northumberland - offering families a great value attraction alongside the Aln Valley Railway. We are now working to extend this railway and we are designing it with our passengers in mind - it'll feature a tunnel, woodlands and steep gradients, making for a really great ride!


We are a 7 ¼” gauge 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.

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!
Visitor Review

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!
