The Journey

Track Layout

Moors Valley Railway is the South’s longest, fully signalled narrow gauge steam railway. The 7 ¼” gauge railway provides a picturesque journey of just over a mile through Moors Valley Country Park. Passengers can either travel on a single or a return journey from both of the stations, Kingsmere and Lakeside.

The 7¼” inch gauge track at Moors Valley Railway uses aluminium rails and wooden sleepers. The main ride is one mile long, but the total track length, including sidings, is about one and a half miles. Features include four foot bridges, four tunnels, one railway bridge, two signal boxes, two stations, a waiting room, a turntable, an engine shed, two carriage sheds, and several signal gantrys. There is also a shop, refreshment kiosk and two ice cream outlets.
