With nearly 2 mile of scenic track, the one fifth scale SMR is home to the East African 31 class 2-8-4 oil burning loco

superb scale British LMS Jubilee and GWR Saint and the mighty NYC Niagara and NKP Berkshire American locos as well as the Curwen Warship Diesel and Curwen Atlantic.

 

The railway normally opens twice per year to the public

2nd weekend in June and 3 day Aug BH

 

However sadly due to Covid-19 virus, along with all other gatherings we have cancelled all our 2020 events

The railway will be on a very limited care and maintenance package to avoid social contact between members with much work from home in own workshops etc although we have on site security presence

 

As soon as we get the clearance from government to resume work we will be back and will advise when we can open to the public again

 

In the mean time can we please urge all our friends and supporters to follow government guildlines and ensure we can all return to normal routines in the shortest possible time
