Britain’s Great Little Railways (BGLR) represents the UK’s leading narrow, miniature and minimum gauge steam & diesel railways. Our members will ensure that you have a safe, interesting and a friendly journey on all of their trains. There are trains of every size and shape powered by steam, petrol, diesel or batteries.
Our railways operate throughout the UK. To find a railway near you go to the interactive map of all our railways allowing you to get directions and giving you access to information about the railway
Most railways are open at weekends and school holidays. They often organise special events such as Thomas Days, Galas with visiting engines, Halloween specials and Santa Specials. Some railways have limited opening times so you need to visit their website or contact them for the latest information
