The Miniature Railway
The Newby Hall Miniature Railway which runs along the River Ure, is a delightful ride with fantastic views of the gardens. Our locomotives run every day we are open – and always on time!
The 10 1/4″ gauge railway first opened in 1971, originally an end to end line, built by Cromar White. The line, now extended runs parallel to the river in the shape of a dumb-bell loop and operates every day of the season. Locomotives used on the railway are two Severn Lamb Western gas locomotives as well as the Royal Scot steam locomotive. The journey takes approximately 12 minutes.
The Royal Scot locomotive has been restored over the last few years and operates on a steel track in conjunction with an electric powered loco and a reserve loco powered with L.P.G.
