Moors Valley Railway is the South’s longest, fully signalled narrow gauge steam railway. The 7 ¼” gauge railway provides a picturesque journey of just over a mile through Moors Valley Country Park. The train travels along the banks of the Moors Lake, before winding around a double loop of the play areas with tunnels, tight curves and inclines!
There are currently seventeen steam and two diesel locomotives in use on the railway, many of them built on site in the workshop at Moors Valley Railway. Passengers can either travel on a single or a return journey from both of the stations, Kingsmere and Lakeside.
Kingsmere Station boasts a railway shop, selling model railway items, souvenirs and a selection of the Thomas and Friends range! As well as a shop, Kingsmere also offers refreshments from the station buffet, including locally produced New Forest Ice Cream, hot and cold drinks, rolls and snacks.
Lakeside Station is located within a large picnic area next to two play areas and also sells New Forest Ice Cream, cold drinks and snacks.
Moors Valley Railway is open on weekends, school holidays and daily from spring bank holiday to September.
