Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Outdoor

Beer Heights Light Railway first opened to the public on the 14 July 1975, is considered by many to be the finest 7.25 inch gauge railway in Britain, and is part ofPecorama, which is located high on the hillside above the village of Beer and is quite famous, dontcherknow!

A ride on the railway offers wonderful views over Lyme Bay to distant Portland Bill, and you get to travel a wonderfully complex and convoluted circuit (due to extensions made to the line over the years), about a mile in length. The route has a number of great features, including a lengthy tunnel, bridges, and extensive sidings, one of which is so steeply graded it zig zags down to ‘Beer Mine', which is set in the hillside above Wildway Park.

There are currently 8 steam locomotives at the railway, plus one electric, and one diesel, and at the busiest times, up to 3 train sets and 4 locomotives can be run at once! Their fully automatic fail safe signalling system ensures smooth operation at such times, and provides a great spectacle too!

Much of the railway's extensive fleet of rolling stock and locomotives is based on British narrow gauge railway practice such as the well known ‘Great Little Trains of Wales', but one-third of the size! A locomotive called ‘Finn MacCool visits every summer, and a number of other locomotives also visit during the ‘Loco Week' and Bank Holiday Weekend Gala'.
