Apedale Valley Light Railway

I+

The volunteers of the Moseley Railway Trust look forward to welcoming you to the Apedale Valley Light Railway.

The railway is built to a smaller size than main-line trains – just 24 inches (605mm) between the rails, compared to 4 feet 8 ½ inches for a full-size train. But these small trains make up in history what they lack in size – they once saw service in mines, quarries and factories all over the country, and they also served the fighting men of the First World War. The trains are hauled by historic steam and diesel locomotives, and they run on a short trip (about 15 minutes round-trip) beside Apedale Country Park. On cold days, wrap up warm – our coaches are unheated and some are open – just like the coaches used by our ancestors going to work!!
