Large donation of Steel enables work to start on new track.

Strathaven miniature railway has commenced the work to extend the raised track in the middle of our ground track by almost 300 feet.

We had started to price the materials to commence this project . It was found that the steel required would be in the region of £2,500 / £3,000 plus other materials required. We were surprised and delighted to received a donation of all the steel required to complete the new track.   A big thank you to  a local Strathaven Resident who is a director for Cairnhill Structures in Coatbridge .

Railway visitors pass 700,000 mark

Since opening in 1949, Strathaven Miniature Railway has welcomed over 700,000 visitors onto its tracks.  This landmark was reached earlier this year.
