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.
