2019 Opening Dates

We now have our planned 2019 opening dates – which can be downloaded in a PDF here: WMR 2019 Calendar – Public

We will be open our normal practice of ‘Weekends and School Holidays’ all year until the end of November.  However, we will also be open daily from April through until September; we trialled weekday trains in June and September in 2018, these proved popular so we are extending weekday running right through May as well.

The railway celebrates it’s 60th birthday in 2019 and we are planning a celebration weekend on the 27th & 28th April; expect to see all our engines running plus some guest engines for the weekend.  There will also be an exhibition showing the history of the railway as it developed over the past 60 years, plus the pioneering history of miniature railways in Watford – did you know the first miniature railway opened to the public was just up the road in Bricket Wood?
