Welcome to the Old Kiln Light Railway

 

Surrey’s Only Industrial 2ft Gauge Railway, Owned & Operated by a group of volunteers who have collected diesel / steam locomotives, rolling stock, as well as other Narrow gauge relics

Hop aboard the charming narrow gauge railway in the rural Surrey countryside.

Situated in the Rural Life Living Museum, a peaceful, Open Air, Village museam, bordering RSPB Heathland; the Old kiln railway takes you on short but characterful journey, behind one of the many preserved locomotives from all walks of life.

From the forests of Portugal, to the Welsh Slate Quarries of Penrhyn, our fine collection of preserved locomotives and stock provides an abundance of railway history to discover and enjoy.

Running Dates for March-December 2020

The railway operates a diesel service for visitors most Sundays, during the Rural Life Living Museum’s main opening season. Steam is usually reserved for the more popular special events, all dates are subject to change with regards to locomotive or volunteer availability.

Access to the railway is via the Rural Life Living Museum, train fares are an additional £2 per person.


With the current climate due to the coronavirus, self isolating restrictions from the government to control it and to protect our staff and members of the general public, we have decided not to open on march 28th, we have taken the measure of suspending all services until further notice.

Please note the rural life living museum is also shut.
