The first of the Stapleford Miniature Railways’ public running days is this weekend.

As part of this Saturday and Sunday models and miniatures entertainment there will be a miniature steam rally, miniature steam traction engines and rollers, classic cars, tractors and trucks, craft and trade stands and a licensed local rela ale and cider bar.

Nigel Spencer, Stapleford Miniature Railway media press officer, said: “The railway will have three locos in steam subject to availability, including the railway’s newly rebuilt stalwart, 1940s loco John H Gretton, following a four-year overhaul and new boiler as pictured on its first steam tests last weekend.”

Admission is £5 per car with train rides £3. Gates open at 10am. The event is supporting LOROS.
