Welcome to BUZZRAIL

Official website of the Leighton Buzzard Railway. England's friendly little line!

 

This is an exciting year for the Leighton Buzzard Railway. A big milestone has been reached in one of the biggest projects in the line's history--a brand-new and much larger station building at Page's Park.

The building was open to the public for the first time on 23rd July, with an opening ceremony planned for later in the year. It is a very impressive building, with a striking interior decoration. Almost worth a visit on its own!

We have now started one of our largest and most poignant special events ever, as we commemorate the centenary of the formation, in 1916, of the War Department Light Railways directorate. For the remainder of the Great War, they built and operated a vast network of narrow-gauge light railways to supply the battlefields. After the War, civilian lines like ours were built with the surplus materials. See our Events page for more details.

As part of our WDLR event, we are screening the Imperial War Museums' archive newsreel film of the Battle of the Somme, bringing us face-to-face with the reality of industrial-scale warfare. The IWM calls it "the most important film ever made". Come and see whether you agree, at the final free screenings on 3rd-4th September, in our new Page's Park station building.

 We are a non-profit charitable organisation, run and managed by volunteers, and dedicated to the preservation of our historic railway since 1967--almost fifty years! 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!

Although we will do our best to deliver the advertised services and events, please remember that these are subject to availability, as we are using working museum pieces to haul your train. The operation of all timetables and events is subject to availability.
