The Leighton Buzzard Railway is the place to go if you like old steam engines with long funnels, loud whistles and lots of gleaming brass! You will be transported back to a different era, as your train chuffs its way slowly past people's houses and out into the countryside, holding up the traffic at level crossings on the way.

A heritage steam railway and working museum, there is a relaxing 70 minute return train ride, hauled in most cases by a historic steam locomotive. Discover their own fascinating history, dating back to the dark days of the First World War, and experience the vanished world of narrow-gauge light railways.

Don't forget to wave! While your engine is given coal and water at the far end of the line, you can relive the long lost days when Leighton Buzzard's quarries sent out hundreds of thousands of tonnes of sand each year, over the line you have just travelled on.

And see the diggers, locomotives and wagons that were used. This is also a great place to have a birthday party on the move, and to meet Santa every December!

Passengers this year will be able to see a new landmark on the horizon: what is claimed to be Britain's biggest onshore wind turbine! Standing 136 metres (450 feet) high, this generates enough power to supply over 1300 homes!
