We are a registered charity, registration number 1015635. Amerton Railway is dedicated to preserving our narrow gauge railway heritage and is operated entirely by volunteers. We are independent from our neighbours, Amerton Farm, though we do recommend you visit them if you are visiting the railway.

Being a charity run entirely by volunteers this means our website is also written, updated and managed by volunteers. If you see an error (a date looks wrong, there’s a spelling mistake or a link doesn’t work etc) please inform us via Facebook. Whilst we try to keep the website as up to date as possible we often update the site at unsociable hours to fit in around work and family.

Our engines and carriages are heritage vehicles and are all operated and maintained by volunteers. As such, all events, services & locomotives are subject to availability. We will endeavour to update our website and Facebook Page should circumstances change.
