HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARGARET (73 years young)
On Saturday the 14th of May our railway will be 73 years old.
The first train pulling passengers on the 14th of May 1949 was pulled by Margaret, our 2-6-0 steam locomotive.
All going to plan and the weather being kind to us we will replicate this event on Saturday the 14th of May 2022 with Margaret in steam and pulling passengers around our track.
Our original track in 1949 was just a small oval 150 yards long, fares were 3d for children and 6d for adults !
Today your journey is almost 1/2 a mile or 750 yards long and costs only £1.00 per passenger.
Come and help us celebrate our birthday and have a train ride on Scotland’s Oldest Miniature Railway.
Hope to see you at the weekend
from the Wee Train.
