Welcome to BUZZRAIL
The official website of the Leighton Buzzard Railway, one of England's finest narrow-gauge railways. It's a friendly little line with a big story to tell, so read on!
We are now running on Sundays and other selected dates until the end of October. This includes Wednesdays to 27th August--ideal for a group outing, or a special trip with pre-school little ones, or a change of scenery if you have booked into the new Center Parcs at nearby Woburn!.
As well as the vintage train ride, they will love the play area and new sensory garden in Page's Park, and Leighton Buzzard now has its own beach! You will find it in the town centre, in the Parson's Close park behind the parish church. Or stay on to enjoy one of our Events days, starting with the Stonehenge Works Super Sunday, on 27th July. Either way, come and make a day of it!

In this period of commemoration of the centenary of the First World War, what better time to visit a railway that was built immediately afterwards, for a peaceful purpose, but using war-surplus materials and equipment? The peaceful purpose was to transport the high-quality sand which is still quarried in the area, and the line still runs where it was first laid, almost a century ago.
Now a nationally accredited working museum, our collection includes several locomotives and other items which actually worked on the supply lines to the First World War trenches, and survived. There are also photo displays about the Great War and its aftermath, for you to explore during the Stonehenge Works runround.
We are a non-profit charitable organisation, run and managed by volunteers, and dedicated to the preservation of our historic railway. We have many openings for anyone who wants to join us, and put a skill to good use, or maybe even learn some new ones.
