All aboard! Our 7 ¼ inche gauge steam, diesel and electric locomotives are fabulous fun – particularly for little ones who are caught up in the delights of trains! With a complete journey time of approximately 20 minutes and an optional stop at Far Leys this is a fun way to get around to the rest of the park!

Start off your adventure on our 7 ¼ inch gauge locomotives with purpose built, vacuum braked coaches! Head on over to the adventure playground, summer paddle boats and car park aboard our Echills Wood locomotives for a trip through the woodlands, try a bit of animal spotting on your way and be sure to pack a picnic as there are several picnic areas around the park covered by the route.

The train ride consists of a circular tour, so if you do get off to picnic you can complete the circuit once you’ve finished and had a play on our fantastic adventure play equipment or a paddle on the boats!

With over 1000 passengers daily during busy periods, this is clearly a delight not to be missed! We also operate a Halloween special evening in October and also run Santa special trains over two weekends in December.
