Penfield Park Railway Miniature Train Rides – Open Days & Twilight Rides | 2020-21

Penfield Park Railway Open Days & Twilight Rides

Penfield Park Railway holds open days on the last Sunday of each month, January to November. Also, on the second Saturday during October to March, they hold a twilight open day from 6pm until 9pm.

Open days at Penfield Park Railway have restarted from Sunday 30 August 2020.  SA Health Covid-19 guidelines will be in place and must be complied with whilst on site.  Just a note that passenger numbers on trains will be restricted and there may be delays between train 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.  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.
