It is very disappointing, but in view of the venerability and vulnerability of visit attendees and railway owners, the proposed visits program shown below is postponed until further notice. This is a rapidly changing situation and a sensible decision has been taken to call for a cease to all non essential contacts with other people. Hopefully we will all be able to safely re-convene at a future date although dependent on both Government restrictions and those hosting our visits.

New dates will be advised on this page in due course..


We organise visits to narrow gauge and miniature railways throughout the year for the benefit of Members. These are mostly private visits, by special arrangement with the owners or operators of the railway.

We often get to see behind the scenes of the railway, such as the sheds and the workshops – areas normally off-limits to the general public. For this reason, we restrict our visits to Members only. If you are not a member and would like to come along on one of our visits, please join the Society first before you complete a booking form – see our Membership page.
