Gartell Light Railway

...half sized trains but full sized fun and enjoyment

Traditional railway practice at work with semaphore, signal boxes and coloured lights set in the heart of the glorious Blackmore Vale


A delightful narrow gauge railway with both steam and diesel trains take you back to a more leisurely age with stunning scenery all around to add to the enjoyment.
 
Although the trains are only half sized they operate in exactly the same way as their full-size counterparts and the railway therefore acts as a museum to the old ways and methods of train travel. Come and indulge in a sense of history, see the signal boxes working and the coloured light controls.
 
The route runs along the old Somerset and Dorset Railway through the beautiful Blackmore Vale which is a delight to see at any time of year, so the train journey will only add to the enjoyment of the trip.
