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. Full details HERE .
For a really steamy experience, don't miss our Small Engines' Steam Up weekend on 6th & 7th September.
And you can now buy your tickets online in advance for our Santa Special and New Year Cheer trains in December, to be sure of getting the date and time most convenient for you--but without the extra booking fees charged by some other attractions!
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.
