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 Centre, 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.
