Stapleford Miniature Railway is opening its base to the public this weekend (June 11 and 12), supporting Leicestershire and Rutland hospice Loros.
The free admission event, held over both days, invites people to take a trip on Stapleford’s magnificent ten- and-a-quarter inch gauge miniature railway as well as enjoying other attractions.
There will be at least 26 miniature traction engines, as well as a couple of full size traction engines, and three locos in steam plus a diesel. Train tickets will be £2 per trip. Free car parking will be provided.
There will also be displays of vintage vehicles and tractors, craft and trade stalls as well as catering and a licensed bottle bar supporting Loros.
Gates will open at 10am. Light refreshments will be available.
