Leighton Buzzard Railway

Comments

The Leighton Buzzard Railway is one of the last survivors of the hundreds of 2 foot (610mm) gauge light railways built in Britain for industrial use. It is believed to be the only remaining line which owed its existence to the ready availability of surplus materials and equipment from the First World War battlefield supply lines.

Opened by Leighton Buzzard Light Railway Ltd in 1919 to transport sand, it is now Bedfordshire's premier heritage railway attraction, running trains along our three-mile line up to five times a week from March to October, with Santa Specials in December.
