Thompson Park Railway

Not many parks can boast their very own railway, but here at Thompson Park we’re all aboard for a fun ride around our fabulous park. See you at the station!

The 7¼ inch minature railway is a very popular attraction for all visitors of the park, whether you just want to spectate or have a ride! It was first opened to the public in 2001 and each year has seen improvements including additional features, more track, and an accessible carriage. 

The miniature railway is entirely run and maintained by as small army of skilled volunteers who are always welcoming new volunteers. 

Trains operate from the first Saturday in April until the end of September and there are several special events throughout the season.  For further information visit
