Everyone at BCP Council is incredibly excited to see the return of Poole Park Railway.

Railway supervisors and volunteers are currently running trains with passengers and continue to trial and monitor the service. Operating hours are still being considered, however the poor weather forecast over the coming days will impact our service.

While our new electric engine is passing final inspections, we are using a temporary engine, on loan courtesy of Lappa Valley, Cornwall’s secret world of play.

We are currently working on plans for an official launch event, which will offer a chance to thank the local miniature train community for their support, advice and encouragement to date, and to celebrate the return of this much-loved local attraction. The date of this celebratory event is still to be confirmed.
