Back to School, but the Trains still run

During the school summer holidays, the Miniature Railway ran on Tuesdays as well as Sundays throughout August and carried 81 intrepid passengers on a wet and wooley 22 August and a maximum of 665 on hot and hectic 06 August.

We wish to thank all those who came along and enjoyed the railway and gardens at Hall Place.

Remember, the railway is still open every Sunday from 12:00 to 16:00 until 01 October inclusive.

The cost of a ride is £1.25 for children and the young at heart. Tickets bought in previous years will, as usual, be valid - and those bought this year and not used can be used in later years.

Our Workshop is now up and running a small group of Members are busy building another Loco Lifter/Trolley to transport Steam and Electric Locomotives from their cars to the track, whilst others continue to improve the infrastructure and keep the site tidy between running days.

October 2023 to April 2024 the Railway will close for winter maintenance, but we may run when Hall Place Christmas is on. Watch this space and Hall Place social media.
