Miniature Railway

Visitors to the railway recently may have seen building work being undertaken at Market Bosworth railway station.

This site has been pending restoration whilst the adjacent housing development was being built. The work in process includes the installation of a new drainage system, and rather excitingly a new miniature railway too!

The work is being carried out by some of the railways volunteers, who also form the Market Bosworth Model Railway Society (MBMRS), and you can find out further details and plans by visiting their dedicated website.



Steam Loco 5199

It is planned to use 5199 on services on 13th and 14th April. This is based on the loco (hopefully!) passing its boiler exam on 12th April. 


Special Events 2024

We have began to add some of our special events onto our calendar for this year, with two "Fish & Chip Special" trains now pre-bookable, along with our Models Weekend in August. More events will be added soon.


Mother's Day Weekend 2024

Due to ongoing engineering works, we regret that we will not be running trains on 9th & 10th March 2024 (this includes the Mother's Day afternoon tea service).

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

The main operating season will therefore commence on Saturday 16th March 2024.
