All proceeds will be split 50/50. Do join us on 2nd and 3rd July and make it a success!
5" and 7.25" Dual Gauge Miniature Railway
Looking for a day out with the family? Visit Coate Water Country Park, Swindon, and ride on one of the UK's premier miniature railways. Current fare is £2.00 per person for a 10 minute ride
Open every Sunday, some Saturdays and most bank holiday weekends (government restrictions, weather and volunteers permitting) from around 11:00 to 16:00 (or dusk in the winter) the Coate Water Miniature Railway runs for just under a mile through a lovely wooded setting, through Richard Jefferies Halt, and with gradients of up to 1:57. During the summer school holidays we open on a Tuesday. Check the timetable page for advertised running dates and planned special events for 2022, and our Facebook and Twitter feeds for the latest news and up to date information.
Our wheelchair accessible carriage, Maisie, is available upon request.
Please note that steam haulage is subject to availability and cannot be guaranteed, as it is reliant on members bringing their locomotives. Usually the resident class 66 or class 86 battery electric locos will be the motive power.
