Welcome to Bushey Miniature Railway

The Bushey Miniature Railway is a 5 inch gauge miniature railway in Herts near London UK.

The 210m journey winds through old trees, over bridges and through 'tunnels' of undergrowth in the garden of an old Georgian house built in 1816.

The railway is still very much a work in progress as there is still much to do, but the main loop of track which enables trains to complete entire journey around the garden is now complete as well as a 15m section that goes over the old pond.

We have recently been featured in a 9 page article in 'Miniature Railway' magazine. Download the full article here.

Take a trip around the Bushey Miniature Railway. The journey consists of 3 loops around the track taking alternative routes each time.

In August 2019 we took delivery of our first Loco, an electric Maxitrack Planet and drivers truck, and will soon be adding a passenger carriage, so any visitors will soon be free to come for a ride (for a small donation towards the railway).

Owners of locos are of course welcome or bring their own loco / rolling stock to try out the track.

Check out our gallery page for recent photos or the history page which describes the story of the railways construction so far.

If you are a visiting loco owner please read the specs page for details of suitability as some of our radii and clearances are quite tight. You may also be interested in our 'News' page, where you can read about the latest work on the railway also about our various trips to other miniature railways in the UK.
