2 Dec 2018 After a huge clean up operation Brookside Miniature Railway is open again with a new operator.

This was days earlier than expected – mainly due to the extremely hard work of the volunteers who slogged away clearing leaves, jet washing, mending track and building new bridges to make it all safer.

It is our intention to keep working away to restore the railway back to the beautiful and charismatic line created by Chris Halsall. Although we are a private company (working alongside the Garden Centre owners) we couldn’t survive without our friends (including many of the original staff) and family helping out. Thank you to all.

Although we didn’t have enough time this year to plan special trains to Santa’s grotto, we’re giving rides as normal - every Wednesday to Sunday until Christmas. In the New Year we’ll be running just at weekends whilst we do further refurbishment. So please bear with us during this time. There will then be a Grand Re-Opening event in early Spring - details to be made public when we know them.

We are keeping the price the same (£2 all classes).

So please come to see us and ask any questions. I can’t promise to answer all the questions on our Facebook page as all our spare time is taken up at the railway. Better still, why not come along and see what you can do to help!

Many thanks
