Club & Track Details

The railway at Coate Water is 5/8s of a mile long and is ground level 5 inch and 7 1/4 inch gauge. We have a three platform station where passengers board the trains. The line then heads round the outside of the railway site before turning to run behind the clubhouse and past the station. Shortly after passing behind the station the railway runs parallel to the other line leaving the station. It then passes under Bailey's Bridge and then begins to climb in a spiral running alongside the outer line to then head over the bridge and down the hill past the steaming bays. It then heads back to the station passing Lakeside Signal Box before arriving in the Platform. The line is also fully signalled with colour light signals. The Coate Water Miniature Railway runs every Sunday (weather permitting!) throughout the year. We usually open around 11am and trains will be running until usually between 4 and 5pm. During the school summer holidays we also open on Tuesdays. The price for everyone is £1
