LWR - Lincolnshire Wolds Railway
We are the only standard gauge steam railway in Lincolnshire open to the public. The East Lincolnshire Railway ran between Boston and Grimsby, via Firsby, Willoughby and Louth. The East Lincolnshire Railway company was incorporated in 1846, and the line opened in 1848, whereupon it was leased by the by Great Northern Railway. The Louth to Grimsby section of the line sadly closed in 1980. We have now continued our resoration efforts, rebuilt the station and are extending the line towards North Thoresby as well as restoring classic steam locomotives.

Leighton Buzzard Railway
Discover the Leighton Buzzard slow train, one of Britainís leading narrow-gauge heritage railways. We operate what is probably the only substantial survivor of the large number of 2 foot (610mm) gauge light railways built in Britain for industrial use. Opened in 1919 to transport sand, the line has carried a steam-hauled passenger train service since 1968, and now houses one of the largest and most important collections of narrow-gauge stock in the country. In typical light-railway fashion, the line features sharp curves, steep gradients--up to 1:25 (4%)--numerous level crossings of roads, and a long stretch of roadside running, as it follows the local geography, rather than imposing itself on it. There is always something new around the next corner. Todayís Leighton Buzzard Railway offers a 70-minute round trip from Pageís Park to Stonehenge Works, which is in the Bedfordshire countryside to the north of the town. The current track is just under 3 miles (4.8km) long. The original line continued for another 0.75 mile (1 km) to Double Arches, and restoration of this section is a long-term objective.
The Talyllyn Railway is a historic narrow-gauge steam railway, set in the beautiful Mid-Wales countryside. Running from Tywyn to Abergynolwyn and Nant Gwernol, the line passes the delightful Dolgoch Falls and there are excellent forest walks at Nant Gwernol.

MNR - The Mid-Norfolk Railway
The Mid-Norfolk Railway is a standard-gauge preserved railway, running through the heart of rural Norfolk. The Mid-Norfolk Railway Preservation Trust was established in 1995 with the aim of buying and restoring the then-disused line between the Norfolk market towns of Dereham and Wymondham. We currently own 28km (17.5 miles) of track and trackbed through central Norfolk's most attractive countryside, making us one of the largest preserved railways in the UK today. The line is operational between Dereham and Wymondham, and we own the disused northern section from Dereham as far as County School. The line is intact (although derelict) as far as North Elmham, and a further mile of track will need to be re-laid in order to reach County School. Our long-term aim is to reach as far as Fakenham. In addition to our passenger services to Wymondham, we also run fairly regular commercial freight trains, as well as the occasional railtour. These result in a wide variety of locomotives visiting Dereham from the main line from time to time, in addition to our fleet of heritage diesel locos.

The West Lancashire Light Railway
The West Lancashire Light Railway is a two foot gauge passenger carrying railway located in the village of Hesketh Bank midway between Preston and the resort of Southport. The line features a number of interesting locomotives and other railway equipment brought together from industrial lines in the immediate locality, from elsewhere in Great Britain and from overseas. The adoption of narrow gauge for public passenger carrying railways was very limited in Great Britain. A great number of narrow gauge lines were however formerly employed in connection with agriculture, construction projects, mining, and a host of industrial applications. Their variety was huge in terms of track gauge, rolling stock and with motive power ranging from manpower to locomotive haulage. Duing the past few decades most of these lines have disappeared following the widespread use of other transport systems such as conveyors and road vehicles or with the decline of the industry which they served. West Lancashire Light Railway was established in 1967 in an endeavour to conserve some of the equipment used on these old lines and to recreate something of their atmosphere and charm. Since most of these old lines operated in areas away from the public gaze, visitors will find much of interest in the variety of locomotives and rolling stock in the collection. The whole family can also enjoy a visit, with the short train ride around a flooded clay pit behind coal fired steam locomotives dating from 1898.
South Tynedale Railway
The South Tynedale Railway operates narrow gauge passenger trains along a 2ľ mile line along the scenic South Tyne valley between Alston, in Cumbria and Kirkhaugh, in Northumberland. The track of the railway is built to the British two foot gauge or the metric equivalent of 610 mm. The narrow gauge line is built along part of the railway trackbed of the former 13 mile long standard gauge Haltwhistle to Alston branch, which was closed by British Rail on 1st May 1976. It is hoped to extend the line by another 2ľ miles from Kirkhaugh to Slaggyford.
