Penfield Park Railway Open Days & Twilight Rides
The Penfield Model Engineers Society (P.M.E.S) was formed with the primary aim of promoting the art of model and experimental engineering. Penfield Park Railway holds open days on the last Sunday of each month, January to November between noon and 4:30pm. Also, on the second Saturday during October, November, December, January, February and March, a twilight open day is held from 6pm until 9pm.
The ride on miniature railway has a total track length of about 1.9km supporting both 7 ¼” and 5” gauge trains.
After leaving the station the railway runs through the outer edge of the park, crosses over itself via a gentle gradient and a steel bridge before passing through a tunnel on its way back to the station.
