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!
Our SANTA SPECIAL trains are now operating, and the remaining tickets are selling fast. You will find full details, plus fee-free instant online booking, HERE.
LATEST: To cope with high demand, we have added extra operating days on Monday 22nd & Tuesday 23rd December, and are now accepting bookings. But hurry, they won't be there for ever!
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.
