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 big news is that we have reached our immediate fundraising target of £50,000 for the Museum Gateway project, which will give our customers and volunteers the Page's Park station building they deserve! Adding in the match funding kindly offered by an anonymous member, plus Gift Aid and the money aleady raised, we now have enough funds to start the project, and work is scheduled to commence in October.

 

But this is not the end of the story. We will need a further £100,000 to complete the building to the standards our customers and volunteers expect, so the fundraising goes on! The initial target was reached in less than a month, with donations large and small, from members and wellwishers alike. If you haven't donated yet--or even if you have--click on the JustGiving button (top right), to help our very good cause.

 

Looking ahead to some special events, the Everything Goes event on Sunday July 26th will give the opportunity to ride behind a variety of different engines, and to sample tracks not usually open to passengers. More events information HERE .

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, even though the surroundings have changed.

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 in the main season, during the Stonehenge Works runround. And for the real flavour of an authentic English narrow-gauge railway--one which did a REAL job of work before becoming a tourist attraction--visit the free Engine Shed Show at Page's Park station.

 

We are a non-profit charitable organisation, run and managed by volunteers, and dedicated to the preservation of our historic railway since 1967. 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. Come and talk to us!
