Dear Visitor,
Come and enjoy a train ride in the beautiful setting of the Littledown Park.

The railway is usually open for rides on Wednesdays, Sundays & Bank Holidays from 11am to 3pm.  
When the weather is cold or wet, or due to other operational reasons, the trains may not run or may have to finish running earlier than advertised. 

 Rides cost £1 per person. We also offer a ticket giving 15 rides for £10 for frequent travellers; please enquire at the Station.

Please note, we can accept cash or card payments for your train rides.
We really look forward to seeing new visitors and all of our regular passengers on the platform and trains soon.

The Bournemouth & District Society of Model Engineers.
The Train Ride 
Littledown Miniature Railway runs for 1/3 mile through a wooded area in Littledown Park. The eagle-eyed traveller may well see both squirrels and rabbits along the way. 
A variety of different locomotives are used to haul the trains, some belonging to the Bournemouth & District Society of Model Engineers and some owned by individual members.  Your train may be hauled by a steam locomotive, an electric (battery) locomotive or a petrol locomotive.  On busy days, you may see all three kinds of motive power in use! You can find out more about the locomotives by clicking here
Spend some time watching the model trains on our Garden Railway which can be seen operating in the garden of the Society opposite the station.  
To check whether trains are running at a particular time, you can telephone 07879 355399.  This mobile number is for voice calls only and will be available while the track is open.  
N.B. For technical reasons, this number is not suitable for text messages
Littledown Park is about 4 miles North-East from Bournemouth Town Centre and is easily reached by road or by public transport.  Bournemouth Station is served by Cross-Country and South Western Railway; there are frequent buses from the station. 
Three hours' free parking is available at the BH Live Active Leisure Centre car park. Should you wish to remain longer then please follow the instructions on the car park signage; this will advise you of the required charges that apply. The track is a couple of minutes' walk from the car park.  Take the path between the main Littledown Centre Building (Western end) and the Football Pitches. The Railway will be found towards the end of this path, where it meets the grounds of JP Morgan.
