Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Outdoor

Summerfields Miniature Railways has been a hidden gem in Bedfordshire ever since it was opened to the public in its present form around 20 years ago.

Beautiful Steam Trains

On several selected days throughout the year the Bedford Model Engineering Society welcomes the general public, adults as well as children, to come and ride on the beautiful steam trains that have been built by its members.

There are three different gauges of track on the Summerfields site, meaning that you will often get to see small trains running as well much larger ones capable of hauling tens of passengers at a time. Some of the trains on view have taken years to build and weigh as much as half a ton.

What's Not to Like?

Whether you are a small child longing to enjoy the thrill of riding a steam train for the first time, an adult steam enthusiast, or just somebody who admires craftsmanship and engineering skills, there is something at Summerfields for you to enjoy.

The BMES members maintain the site 52 weeks of the year and as well as a station to arrive at, Haynes End, there is a station buffet, where families can take refreshments, buy souvenirs or use the conveniences.

Plenty of on-site parking is available and getting a spot is rarely a problem, even on the busiest of days.
