MOORS VALLEY RAILWAY 2008

 

This miniature railway of 7 inch gauge is at the Moors Valley Country Park in East Dorset, just north of Ferndown.
The railway is built on a former dairy farm, and one of the cow sheds is now Kingsmere station.  Work on the railway began in 1985.  The passenger line is about one mile long, but there is a further half mile of sidings and other track.
Currently there are 15 steam locomotives on the site.
