Make Time for the Leighton Buzzard Slow Train

This family attraction, popular for almost 40 years, is a unique piece of industrial heritage from the lost age of the English light railway.

Probably the only substantial survivor of the many 2 ft gauge light railways built for industrial use in Britain, the line has carried a steam-hauled passenger train service since 1968, and it now boasts one of the largest and most important collections of narrow-gauge stock in the country.

The 70-minute round trip from Page’s Park station to Stonehenge Works covers just under 3 miles of sharp curves, steep gradients and level crossings; with surprises around every corner as your historic steam engine makes its leisurely way through the Bedfordshire countryside to the north of Leighton Buzzard.

All children receive a free Rail Trail activity pack, and other souvenirs can be bought from the railway shop, which also stocks a wide range of Thomas The Tank Engine merchandise.

Stonehenge Works is the base for repairing locomotives and rolling stock some of which can be seen in the works yard; and from a special viewing area you can see the footplate crew topping up the passenger train locomotive with coal and water before the return journey.

There’s ample free parking, a large public park with a children’s play area and sporting facilities, plus a wide selection of food, drinks and ice cream from Dobbers Diner, the ideal child-friendly place to relax.

Other attractions include a small exhibition telling the story of the railway and the people who worked it, including a life-size model of a “dobber” - a sand-quarry worker - who would have loaded the railway wagons by hand in the 1900’s. Dobbers Diner at Page’s Park station houses an exhibition of historic photographs celebrating the work of such men and the railway’s own industrial heritage.
